National NAIDOC Week celebrations will kick off across Australia in the first week of July (Sunday, July 7 to Sunday, July 14), celebrating and acknowledging the rich history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week offers an opportunity for all Australians to engage with and learn about the oldest, continuous living cultures on Earth.

This year’s NAIDOC Week theme, “Blak, Loud and Proud,” reflects a powerful commitment to amplifying the voices of Indigenous peoples and celebrating their unyielding spirit. The theme highlights the resilience and vitality of our Aboriginal cultures, symbolised by the enduring fire that connects communities to the land, to each other, and to their traditions. This flame represents the pride and unity that continue to inspire the preservation and sharing of our cultural heritage.

“Blak, Loud and Proud” also emphasises the importance of reclaiming and amplifying Indigenous narratives, fostering a more equitable society where the wisdom and contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are fully respected and valued. It encourages all Australians to engage in thoughtful dialogue and participate in activities that promote understanding and appreciation of First Nations cultures.

This NAIDOC Week, we invite you to join us in recognising and honouring the Wiradjuri Elders, the traditional owners of our land, and to take part in a variety of events and activities celebrating the rich tapestry of Indigenous cultures. By coming together, we can deepen our understanding and strengthen our commitment to supporting and uplifting our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
