National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday), to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.

Join your community at a NAIDOC event hosted by Burwood Council!

Kids will have the opportunity to interact with animals, learn about our animal's natural history and the unique traits that they each have.

Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Training for Staff

We believe that understanding and respect start from within. We are organising an Aboriginal cultural awareness training for Burwood Council staff who have a customer-facing role, including our dedicated customer service, Library and Community Safety staff. This training will provide a deeper understanding of Aboriginal cultures, histories, and contemporary experiences.
