Reconciliation Week

27 May-3 June

National Reconciliation Week invites all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

With an aim to inspire conversations about how we can create a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, these dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum (27 May), and the High Court Mabo decision (3 June).

More information and resources about Reconciliation Week are available here.
