It's probably the least likely redirect you could ever expect.

But click on Pauline Hanson's website and you'll end up being redirected to the Refugee Council of Australia.

It would seem the senator's website domain name (paulinehanson.com.au) has lapsed, meaning that it was free for anyone to take over.

It now directs to the refugee advocacy group, however it is unknown whether the group was involved in the exercise or whether it was simply the "beneficiary" of an alert supporter.

The Refugee Council of Australia's website says it is "the national umbrella body for refugees and the organisations and individuals who support them".

Formed in November 1981, its work centres on five key areas: policy; support for refugees, support for its members; community education; and administration.

Ms Hanson's has long campaigned on issues of multiculturism and immigration and has been labelled a xenophobe more than once in her political career.

Internet archiving system Wayback Machine would indicate that Ms Hanson hasn't regularly held the domain name since 2016. It was then the Queensland-based politician was elected to the Senate and turned her focus on One Nation's digital footprint.
