NAIDOC Week 2019 is happening 7 - 14 July. This year’s theme is Voice. Treaty. Truth: Let’s work together for a shared future

NAIDOC Week is a time for all Australians to come together and understand the true history of Australia's treatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In the words of the NAIDOC website:

"The true story of colonisation must be told, must be heard, must be acknowledged...hearing this history is necessary before we can come to some true reconciliation, some genuine healing for both sides."

Below is a list of events across South Eastern NSW, in order of date. We encourage everyone in the community to attend an event in your local area.
