National Reconciliation Week 2024

Posted 9 May 2024

The National Reconciliation Week 2024 theme is “Now More Than Ever.” It is a reminder to all of us that no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will —and must —continue.

National Reconciliation Week is recognised each year from 27 May until 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.

A spirit of goodwill, mutual respect and recognition of the effects of colonisation on Australia’s first people are the symbolic cornerstones of the reconciliation effort.
