Our detention centres are full, and to cope with the overflow there are now 217 suburbs and towns across Australia that are housing asylum seekers in hotels and family homes. But while this crisis unfolds, there's one detention centre that lays empty and ignored.
Hundreds of neighbourhoods are now being used to house asylum seekers as our detention centres overflow, sparking new calls to reopen Nauru's offshore processing centre.
There are 52 different locations in Queensland alone - including Virginia, Moorooka, Inala, Southport and Boondall.
Victoria has 46 detention sites of its own, including the suburbs of Broadmeadows, Sunshine, Dandenong, Frankston and Mitcham.
Sydney's west is also home to many with housing in Bankstown, Blacktown, Mt Druitt, Cabramatta and Merrylands.
