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.

Voice to Parliament Yarn 2023
9 August @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEST
Develop the mindset and confidence to be an active ally, by joining us in a 60-minute discussion on the Voice to Parliament.
In this yarn we will delve into the key elements that underpin the Uluru Statement of the Heart and the impact it has on the future of First Nations Australians.
What will we focus on?
– The history and context of the Voice to Parliament as proposed in the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
– The reasons a Voice to Parliament is being proposed.
– What a Voice to Parliament can do and what it can’t do.
– The referendum question and why a change to the constitution is necessary.
– Proposals by Indigenous experts for the implementation model of the Voice to Parliament if the referendum is successful.
– The diversity of views and support for the Voice Referendum amongst First Nations people.
