National Reconciliation Week
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
The dates for NRW are the same each year; 27 May to 3 June.
Every year workplaces, schools, early learning services, community groups, reconciliation groups, and people right across the country host a whole range of activities.
Please note: the events posted below are not the responsibility of Reconciliation Australia. If you have any questions regarding an event, please contact the organisers.

ANTaR Armidale Reconciliation Bridge Walk
28 May @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm AEST
Each year Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people celebrate Reconciliation Week with our Bridge Walk.
We walk together across Stephen’s Bridge, do a circuit of Curtis Park and then gather to listen to short speeches and enjoy Aboriginal entertainment. It is a great opportunity to meet and chat with friends, old and new, enjoy the entertainment and have lunch together.
This year we again feature local Aboriginal dancer and didgeridoo player Bob Blair, who works at the Armidale Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Keeping Place. Since his training at NAISDA, Mr Blair has been educating and entertaining young and old in many regions.
Everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy this friendly, fun, free event. Bring a picnic – tea, coffee, sausages and some vegetarian alternatives will be provided.
Organised by Armidale ANTaR, the local reconciliation group, with support from The Armidale Regional Council, Homes North Community Housing and Reconciliation New South
