Each year NAIDOC week activities and events are held around Australia to recognise and celebrate indigenous culture across the country. From July 7-14 you can be part of the celebrations and learn more about the land, the people and the culture of the part of Australia that you live in. This year’s theme is VOICE. TREATY. TRUTH.

It is also the International Year of Indigenous Languages.

Many of our landmarks & National Parks across Australia have indigenous names and we encourage everyone to find out more about language and culture that are part of the region that you live.

A great place to start your learning journey is the This Place project developed by First Languages Australia and ABC. You can also find out what languages are spoken in your local area through the Gambay Map.

If you can get out and visit a National Park this weekend join one of the many events happening across Australia, for a full list of activities happening visit:
