Be a voice for generations

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land and pay our respect to them and their Elders - both past and present. Settlement City is located on Birpai Land. 

Each year from 27 May to 3 June Australia acknowledges National Reconciliation Week. This is a time for all Australians to pause, reflect and learn about the history and culture of First Nations peoples, and explore ways we can continue to shape Australia into a reconciled nation.

The dates that bookend National Reconciliation Week commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum (on 27 May 1967), and the High Court Mabo decision (on 3 June 1992).

The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2023 is “Be a voice for generations”

Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and importantly as a nation. Everyone is encouraged to come together, in person and join in 
conversations as we strive for a more just, equitable nation in an environment of unity and respect
