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

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held around Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This year, due to the impacts and uncertainty of COVID-19, the National NAIDOC Committee postponed National NAIDOC Week 2020 celebrations to 8-15 November.

In celebration of 2020 NAIDOC Week and this year's theme - Always Was, Always Will Be, the City partnered with prominent Aboriginal artist Sharyn Egan to deliver four 'Fantastic Creatures' (animal totems) Noongar weaving workshops at the City's three libraries.

The City acknowledges and thanks the Australian Government: National Indigenous Australian Agency for proudly supporting this year's NAIDOC Week free community activities.

During NAIDOC week the City is also progressing work on its second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) - Innovate.  To help inform the next stage of our Innovate RAP please head to Engage Bayswater. You can also read about more about the City's unique reconciliation journey in our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan.

Please call Community Development on 9272 0658 or email for any questions about accessibility.

Proudly supported by the National Indigenous Australians Agency.
