About National Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week(opens in a new window) runs every year from 27 May to 3 June. It is a time to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements and explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation.

The dates commemorate two significant milestones in the journey of reconciliation. 27 May was the successful 1967 referendum(opens in a new window) and 3 June was the High Court Mabo decision(opens in a new window).

National Reconciliation Week is celebrated in workplaces, schools and early learning services, community organisations and groups, and by individuals all over Australia.

The theme for 2024 is Now more than ever.
