The acronym NAIDOC stands for National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee. Historically, NAIDOC Week began as the Day of Mourning when in 1938, a group of more than 1000 Aboriginal people gathered at Australia Hall in Sydney to call for full citizenship status and laws to improve the lives of First Nations people and to mourn the 150th anniversary of the First Fleet’s arrival.

We’ve gathered a collection of events in our region as a handy guide to getting involved in the celebrations near you.
