NAIDOC Week

​The National Aboriginies and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week is usually held each year in July, however it was postponed in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of this, NAIDOC Week 2020 will be held from Sunday 8 November until Sunday 15 November.

NAIDOC Week 2020
8-15 November
Always Was, Always Will Be

NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It is celebrated by all Australians and is a great opportunity to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

The 2020 theme, Always Was, Always Will Be, recognises that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years, and that our nation's story didn't begin with documented European contact. You can read more about this theme on the NAIDOC website.

Get involved!
Join one of the cultural events celebrating NAIDOC Week at our community centres, below, or browse the event listings on the NAIDOC Week website for more across the state.
