NAIDOC Week 2020 celebrations

8 November 2020 to 15 November 2020

NAIDOC Week 2018

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each year 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.

NAIDOC Week is traditionally held in the first full week of July but has been postponed to Sunday 8–Sunday 15 November due to COVID-19.

The 2020 NAIDOC theme, Always Was, Always Will Be, recognises and celebrates that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years.
