National Reconciliation Week runs from Wednesday 27 May to Wednesday 3 June and is a time for people of all ages to come together and strengthen relationships and understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Reconciliation Week program will look a little different this year and is moving online with a range of activities in partnership with Mullum Mullum Indigenous Gathering Place (MMIGP).
