NAIDOC Week celebrations

Brisbane City Council acknowledges the importance of NAIDOC Week to Aboriginal and Torres Strait peoples and supports a variety of events held throughout the city. NAIDOC Week is usually celebrated in the first full week of July each year.

The National NAIDOC Committee has postponed NAIDOC Week 2020 (5-12 July) following advice from the Australian Government, health experts, their key partners and leading national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health organisations. As a result, many local organisations have postponed NAIDOC events planned to occur in Brisbane.

Council is encouraging community groups to follow the Australian Government’s advice about events and gatherings in response to the health risks associated with coronavirus. For more information, visit and search ‘limits on public gatherings’.

Residents are encouraged to check Council’s website for event listing updates. For up-to-date information about coronavirus, visit
