List of Australian immigration detention facilities
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of current and former Australian immigration detention
facilities. Immigration detention facilities are used to house people in
immigration detention, and people detained under the Pacific Solution,
and Operation Sovereign Borders.
Most facilities were operated by Australasian Correctional Management
under contract from the Department of Immigration until 2003, when
ACM exited the market. Between 2003 and 2009, G4S was appointed
as the contractor to manage a large number of facilities. Its contract was
not renewed and in 2009 Serco Australia was awarded a five-year
contract. The offshore processing centres on Nauru and Manus are
operated by Transfield Services, with security sub-contracted to Wilson
Security.
