Get into NAIDOC Week with the City of Wanneroo

Published Monday, 6th July 2015

The City of Wanneroo is celebrating NAIDOC Week with a variety of activities available for all.


NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.

NAIDOC Week is held in the first full week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

The City is hosting a variety of activities to celebrate and educate Indigenous culture here in the City of Wanneroo. Click on the links below to find out more.
