A family whose detention has focused anger over Australia's asylum-seeker policies have won a four-year battle to return to their Queensland town.

Australia's new government granted visas to the Murugappan family, allowing them to temporarily live and work in Biloela.

The Tamil family has been in immigration detention since 2018 after their claim for asylum was rejected.

The case sparked an outcry and locals in Biloela campaigned for their return.

Legal challenges to the decision to deny them protection remain before Australia's courts.

Ohh incidentally - it’s pronounce “bill ohh wheel ah. with the “ah” being a soft sound at the end. Even Aussies have trouble with those sort of names.

Looks more like a 'bill ohh eeh lah'  to me. Then again, you Queenslanders are weird creatures and anything is possible.

True, I have no bloody idea where the “wh” sound comes from.
