Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) week seeks to raise awareness about the value Indigenous people contribute to the wider community. This year, NAIDOC week’s theme celebrates the acceptance of the Yirrkala Bark Petitions by the Australian Parliament. This event is considered to be the catalyst in the recognition of the rights of the Indigenous community within Australian law. In 1963 the Yolngu people sent a petition framed by bark paintings seeking the acknowledgement of their land rights. They were the first traditional documents to be acknowledged by the Commonwealth.

Get into the celebrations of the beginning of NAIDOC week in Cranbourne's Australian Garden with Koolin-ik ba kirrip-buluk (family and friends).
