National NAIDOC Week

National NAIDOC Week: 8 November – 15 November 2020.

Always Was, Always Will Be.

Always Was, Always Will Be recognises that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years and are spiritually and culturally connected to this country.

NAIDOC 2020 invites all Australians to embrace the true history of this country – a history which dates back thousands of generations. 

It’s about seeing, hearing and learning the history of this country – which is Australian history.
