The Congolese community in Australia is very small. The 2001 Census identified around 270 people who were residents of Australia who were born in DRC.


About 250 different African languages are spoken in the country. The main languages spoken are Lingala ,Kikongo, Kingwana, and Tshiluba.

French is the country’s official language, it is used in government and education. However, only a small amount of the population uses French

as a working language majority speak the local languages. Many Congolese can

communicate in a number of different local languages.


Around 70 % of the population follows Christian beliefs and around 10 % of the population is Muslim and the remaining 20 per cent follow either traditional or syncretic beliefs .

50% of the Christians are Roman Catholics and 20% and Protestant


The Congolese diet is very healthy. Lots of people grow

their own food and eat a lot of freshly grown, unprocessed foods. An example of a common Congolese meal consist normally of starchy foods like potatoes or yams served with a thick fish based stew or sauce

The food is flavoursome and spicy . Food is often prepared in large pots

So people can share the meal. In rural areas most people use charcoal

or wood for cooking, and might not know much about gas or electrical things.

People from urban areas will be more familiar with microwaves ,ovens and electrical things.
