NAIDOC is a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and an opportunity to recognise the contributions of Indigenous Australians in various fields. NAIDOC week (7 – 14 July) showcases a national Indigenous program of events that acknowledge the diversity of Aboriginal culture and celebrating reconciliation.

This year’s NAIDOC theme -  “Voice.Treaty.Truth. Let’s work together for a shared future” will be a platform for acknowledgment, conversations and understanding of our history in order for all Australians to move forward together.
