National Reconciliation Week

A national campaign, 27 May –3 June, celebrating and building on respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.

What is National Reconciliation Week?

27 May – 3 June

The dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.

The week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements and to explore how each of us can join the national reconciliation effort.

Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Make reconciliation part of your story and your future.

All Australians are invited to participate in our nation’s reconciliation journey. Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of us all as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples. Make reconciliation part of your story and your future by getting involved in some of the National Reconciliation Week (NRW) activities suggested here.

What is the Theme?

The theme for NRW 2017 is ‘Let’s take the next steps’

This National Reconciliation Week we reflect on two significant anniversaries in Australia’s reconciliation journey — 50 years since the 1967 referendum and 25 years since the historic Mabo decision.

As we commemorate these significant milestones, we ask all Australians to be a part of the next big steps in our nation’s reconciliation journey
