NAIDOC and National Reconciliation Weeks
National NAIDOC Week 2023
National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday), to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth. You can support and get to know your local Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities through activities and events held across the country.
In 2023 NAIDOC Week will be celebrated from 2 to 9 July 2023. The 2023 National NAIDOC Week theme is For Our Elders.
Planning for this year's celebrations are underway.

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
The dates for NRW are the same each year - 27 May to 3 June.
