An Afghan refugee has cycled more than 700 kilometres around Australia to collect signatures for a petition, that's calling for an end to offshore detention in Nauru and Manus Island in PNG.

Rohullah Hussaini's petition is asking for a better deal in Australia for displaced people - and he's planning to table it in Australia's parliament.

Speakers: Rohullah Hussaini, refugee, Nationals MP Andrew Broad, Michael Adamson, Swan Hill Deputy Mayor
