This year’s NAIDOC Week theme Songlines – the living narrative of our nation- seeks to engage the wider community to know more about The Dreamtime- when ancestral spiritual beings shaped our rivers, lakes, plants, land formation and living creatures.

NAIDOC Week is a great opportunity to recognise and celebrate our indigenous cultural fabric.
