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.
You can also add your own event to this calendar or register your private event.

Lowitja O’Donoghue Oration 2023
29 May @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm ACST
The Don Dunstan Foundation proudly presents the Lowitja O’Donoghue Oration in collaboration with Reconciliation South Australia, the University of Adelaide and Flinders University.
This year’s Oration, which is also supported by the Lowitja Institute and the Lowitja O’Donoghue Foundation, will be delivered by the Honourable Anthony Albanese MP, Prime Minister of Australia. It is the first time a sitting Prime Minister has been the orator.
The Oration honours influential Aboriginal Leader, Dr Lowitja O’Donoghue AC CBE DSG and seeks to highlight vital issues for Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The 26th annual event, which takes place during Reconciliation Week, is held at Bonython Hall at the University of Adelaide. The very first Oration was presented by Lowitja, herself, on the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum.
