NAIDOC Week events
NAIDOC Week, which stands for the National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee, is an annual event that takes place across the country, celebrating the diverse cultures and contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
This year's NAIDOC theme, 'For Our Elders', is an opportunity for all Australians to learn from First Nations' Elders' knowledge and perspectives, and to recognise that their experiences and 65,000 years of cultural heritage is invaluable to our Australian life today.
Throughout NAIDOC Week, a range of events, activities, and celebrations will take place across Queensland as well as the entire nation. These events offer a unique opportunity to engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, learn about their deep connection to Country, and appreciate their ongoing contributions to environmental conservation and stewardship.
On the 2nd of July, the YES campaign for the upcoming VOICE referendum will be launching a series of events across the nation that we encourage you to attend. You may find QCC staff at both the Brisbane and Sunshine Coast events.
Please explore the list below of some official events being held across the State, spread the word, invite others, and embrace the opportunity to engage with the diverse cultures that make Australia truly remarkable.
