Each year, NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

This year, NAIDOC Week is being celebrated 8-16 November 2020. The 2020 theme “Always was, Always will be" recognises that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for more than 65,000 years.

Our Deadly Innovation Strategy and Indigenous programs aim to support growth and create jobs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Acknowledgment of Country

We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors of the land and sea, their spirits and their legacy. The foundations laid by these ancestors—our First Nations peoples—gives strength, inspiration and courage to current and future generations, both Indigenous and non‑Indigenous, towards creating a better Queensland.
