National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is celebrated across Australia annually between 27 May and 3 June. The dates commemorates two significant milestones in our nations reconciliation journey:
- the beginning of the week marks the anniversary of the successful 1967 referendum
- the end of the week marks the High Court Mabo decision.
National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements.

The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2023 is Be a Voice for Generations.
The theme encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we live, work and socialise. For the work of generations past, and the benefit of generations future, act today for a more just, equitable and reconciled country for all.
We encourage organisations, groups and families to celebrate and discuss Reconciliation.
More information and ideas on how to commit to and celebrate Reconciliation can be found on the Reconciliation Australia Website.
