National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is celebrated across Australia each year between 27 May and 3 June.

NRW celebrates and builds respectful relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous Australians.

Let's take the next steps

The theme for 2018  was “Don't Keep History A Mystery“.

“Don’t Keep History A Mystery: Learn. Share. Grow” explores history hidden just beneath the surface, ready and waiting to be uncovered. This National Reconciliation Week learn more about the Australian story.
