Celebrating NAIDOC Week 2017

Celebrating NAIDOC Week 2017

NAIDOC Week is almost upon us again, with many activities and events to be held across Australia. NAIDOC Week 2017 will begin on July 2nd, with the theme “Our Languages Matter”. The important awards ceremony will be held in this year’s host city, Cairns, however you can get involved all over the country.  

Sir Douglas Nicholls and William Cooper honoured in Shepparton mural

Hundreds of people have gathered to witness the unveiling of a nine-metre mural in Shepparton depicting prominent Yorta Yorta men, Sir Douglas Nicholls and William Cooper.

The mural is part of an ongoing Aboriginal Street Art project to celebrate the contributions of Indigenous people to life in Shepparton. This is a great way to remember and pay tribute to such important figures in our history.

NAIDOC 2016 Events Calendar


We hope you're looking forward to NAIDOC week, which starts tomorrow, Sunday July 3rd!
There have already been some incredible events happening, including flag-raising ceremonies, smoking ceremonies, marches, galas, art exhibitions and more!

We've put together a list of some of the events happening in the next few weeks that stood out as potential highlights and/or widely accessible to as many people as possible. The list includes events happening in both regional and metropolitan Victoria.

While not all local councils are on our list, it is very easy to find out what's going on locally for you by going to your local council's website. Most, if not all, will have some great information about NAIDOC events coming up!
