Across the country, in every state and territory, hundreds of events are being held to celebrate NAIDOC Week.

One of the best ways you can get involved in NAIDOC Week and engage with your local Aboriginal community is to commit to attending one of these events, joining together with hundreds of others as we celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

Below are a list of NAIDOC Week events in every capital city. This is not an exhaustive list, and there are many events happening in other cities, and regional and rural areas, so please take time to find out what events are happening in your local area (tip: Search NAIDOC Week events on the NAIDOC website here, and Facebook is a good place to find NAIDOC Events). We will be updating this webpage in the lead up to NAIDOC Week, 7-14 July.
