Naidoc Week Celebrations, because of her we can!


This year, NAIDOC week celebrated “BECAUSE OF HER WE CAN”. Acknowledging and celebrating the huge contributions across family, community and society that our strong Indigenous women have made such an amazing impact toward.

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week, was a great opportunity for us and our children to participate in a range of activities and to support local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself.
