NAIDOC Week Print


NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July 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.

NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

Join Newman's annual NAIDOC Week Celebrations for a free community concert, Bush Tucker, and amusement rides.
