National Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week 2021 official poster

National Reconciliation Week is celebrated from 27 May–3 June each year.

National Reconciliation Week is a national campaign celebrating and building on respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous peoples. The dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey—the successful 1967 referendum (27 May) and the 1992 High Court Mabo decision (3 June).
