National Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week is a time when all Australians can come together to share knowledge, stories and histories so that we can together, grow as a nation. The week is held from 27 May to 3 June each year, commemorating two significant milestones: the anniversaries of the successful 1967 referendum (May 27th) and the High Court Mabo decision (June 3rd). The 2018 theme is 'Don't Keep History a Mystery: Learn. Share. Grow'. CLICK HERE to find more about National Reconciliation Week.
