National NAIDOC Week

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held around the country to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The week is celebrated not just in our Indigenous communities but also in increasing number of government agencies, community organisations, local councils, workplaces, schools and sporting groups.

UQ celebrates NAIDOC Week with our annual NAIDOC Festival early in Semester 2 each year, but this year we are also joining in with the rest of Australia and celebrating it during the officialy recognised week.

See how we celebrated earlier this year
