2024 NAIDOC Week

NAIDOC Week will be held from July 7-14 this year. This annual celebration honours the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. It provides an opportunity for all Australians, both within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and across the nation and overseas, to engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories. Join the festivities and celebrate the world's oldest continuous living cultures.

This year’s theme, chosen by the National NAIDOC Committee, is Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud & Proud.

This theme celebrates the enduring strength and vitality of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, with fire symbolising a deep connection to the land, to each other, and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. Through activities and events held nationwide, everyone can support and engage with their local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
