NAIDOC Week 2022

NAIDOC Week 2022 will run from 3 to 10 July. It’s a time to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, but by Australians from all walks of life.

This year the theme is Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! It calls on Australians to actively champion change for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We invite you to join us at NAIDOC Week activities listed below.

Boroondara Reconciliation Strategy

We are committed to providing a welcoming community where the histories, cultures, knowledge, achievements and aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are acknowledged, respected, considered and celebrated. We recently launched the Boroondara Reconciliation Strategy 2022–26, which formalises our commitment to reconciliation in Boroondara. It provides a 4-year vision and action plan for implementing reconciliation actions with the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation (WWCHAC) and other stakeholders in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander sector and the broader community.
