NAIDOC Week

NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. From 4 to 8 July, participate in a range of activities to celebrate and support the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. 

NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself.
