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.

Yalinguth App Walking Tour – Fitzroy
26 May @ 9:00 am - 3 June @ 6:00 pm AEST
Yalinguth is an immersive audio experience. It’s an app connecting you to the important Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history of Gertrude Street, in Melbourne’s iconic Fitzroy.
In the Woi Wurrung language Yalinguth means “yesterday”, and echoes the sentiments of many Elders that “we need to go back, before we can go forwards”.
A Yalinguth walk is made up of spoken stories, songs, poems, and atmospheric soundscapes. You’ll hear up to 40 Elders – musicians and storytellers including the much loved and recently passed, Uncle Jack Charles and Uncle Archie Roach.
Download the app, grab your headphones and head to Gertrude Street!
“This is a fantastic experience. The narratives and perspectives given create a rich historical tapestry. Not only is this an excellent execution of the idea, but more than that it is an important historical account. If I could rate it higher I would – Five stars!”
