NAIDOC Week

National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday), to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth. You can support and get to know your local Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities through activities and events held across PAE.

The National NAIDOC Week theme for 2024 is ‘Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud ’and the official dates are 7 - 14 July.

The theme honours the enduring strength and vitality of First Nations culture — with fire a symbol of connection to Country, to each other and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

To find out how you can support and get to know your local Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities through activities and events held across the PAE and the state visit the NAIDOC Week program site.
