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. NAIDOC stands for the National Aboriginal and Islander Day of Observance Committee.

NAIDOC Week provides an opportunity to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. It also celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and history and is an opportunity to recognise the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community’s contributions to Brisbane City.

NAIDOC Week will be held from 4-11 July this year. 

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each year and celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with each year having a theme. This year’s theme is 'Heal Country!', calling for all of us to continue seeking greater protections for our lands, our waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration, and destruction.
