'NAIDOC' is 'National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee'

In July each year, NAIDOC Week celebrations are held around Australia to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Australians from all walks of life organise and participate in activities to support their local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

NAIDOC Week focuses on a different theme each year, and a nominated city hosts an awards ceremony to recognise outstanding contributions that Indigenous Australians have made to improve the lives of people in their communities.

2019 NAIDOC Week runs from 7-14 July. This year's theme is 'VOICE, TREATY, TRUTH - Let's work together for a shared future.'

We are celebrating NAIDOC Week 2019 with a range of free events open to everyone in our community.
