Join countless Australians in celebrating NAIDOC Week and honouring the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 

NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) can be traced back to the 1920s movement to increase awareness of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians. This significant festival is held in the first full week of July and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

This year some of the major events include:

All South Australians are encouraged to support the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in participating in the NAIDOC activities held across the state.
