National Reconciliation Week

From 27 May to 3 June, we come together to celebrate National Reconciliation Week.

This year, the National Reconciliation Week theme—Be Brave. Make Change—calls on us to reflect on our own contributions towards reconciliation. By playing our part, we strengthen relationships, celebrate the histories and culture of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and contribute to a more equal future.

National Reconciliation Week commemorates two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey:

  • the successful 1967 referendum
  • the 1992 High Court Mabo decision.

During National Reconciliation Week Queensland communities will come alive with lights, community events and celebrations. Iconic landmarks, buildings, and public spaces will light up in colours of the Aboriginal flag and Torres Strait Islander flag. You can also follow activities on social media with the tags #NRW2022 and #BeBraveMakeChange.
