Celebrating NAIDOC Week: 8-15 July

Sunday 8th July, 2018

Under the theme - Because of Her, We Can! - NAIDOC Week 2018 will be held nationally from Sunday 8 July and continue through to Sunday 15 July.

This years theme celebrates the essential role that women have played - and continue to play - as active and significant role models at the community, local, state and national levels.

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

Local community celebrations during NAIDOC Week are encouraged and often organised by communities, government agencies, local councils, schools and workplaces. Wherever you live, you can take part in NAIDOC Week celebrations. For more information visit the NAIDOC website.
