10th July 2020
NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated by Australians from all walks of life and usually takes place in early July.
This year NAIDOC Week celebrations will be held from the 8-15 November.
The November dates follow the decision by the National NAIDOC Committee (NNC) to postpone NAIDOC Week from the original July dates due to the impacts and uncertainty from the escalating Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic across our communities and cities.
NAIDOC, stands for National Aboriginal and Islander Day of Commemoration and invites all Australians to celebrate the history of this country – a history which dates back thousands of generations. This year the theme is:
Always Was, Always Will Be.
