NAIDOC – Always Was, Always Will Be

NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for us to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and acknowledge the First Nation’s story that began over 65,000 years ago. This event provides an opportunity to commemorate, honour and reflect on that history.

This year, the theme for NAIDOC Week, “Always Was, Always Will Be” honours the First Nation’s story that began over 65,000 years ago.
