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.

Bayside Flag raising Ceremony & Ellen Jose Student Reconciliation Awards
27 May @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am AEST
Join us on Saturday, May 27 for a “Welcome to country” and smoking ceremony by the Traditional owners Bunurong Land Council and to raise the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Flags to commemorate National Reconciliation Week.
The event will also celebrate the finalists and winners of the Ellen José Student Reconciliation Awards at our flag raising ceremony.
The Ellen José Student Reconciliation Awards honours the life of Torres Strait Elder Ellen José (1951 – 2017). Ellen was a pioneer in Australia’s urban Indigenous art movement and a radical activist and social justice campaigner. Her contribution to the arts and Bayside was outstanding and inspirational in raising awareness of reconciliation.
