What does NAIDOC mean to you?

What NAIDOC means to me—it’s culture, heritage, family, country & mob coming together to celebrate our trailblazers.

Welcome to NAIDOC.

We acknowledge all First Peoples of the beautiful lands on which we live and celebrate their enduring knowledge and connections to Country. We honour the wisdom of and pay respect to Elders past and present.
