NAIDOC Week

NAIDOC Week is held annually from the first Sunday in July.

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity to recognise the important contribution Indigenous cultures make to our community and build bridges between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.

The celebrations are kicked off  in Fairfield City on the first Monday morning of July with a symbolic Flag Raising Ceremony at Council Chambers as a tribute to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people around the country. The Ceremony is attended by representatives of the Gandangara Local Aboriginal Land Council, the Mayor of Fairfield City, members of Council’s Aboriginal Advisory Committee, local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders, community members and Council staff. 

For more information contact Council’s Community Project Officer – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders on 9725 0132 during office hours Monday to Wednesday.
