National Reconciliation Week 2021: 27 May to 3 June

What is Reconciliation Week?

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is for everyone to take the time to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements as Australians. It offers an opportunity for each of us to reflect and explore ways to achieve reconciliation in workplaces, communities and our daily lives.

NRW is held at the same time each year (27 May to 3 June) to reflect the dates of the 1967 referendum (PDF, 320KB) and the High Court Mabo decision (PDF, 174KB). The 2021 National Reconciliation Week theme, "More than a word. Reconciliation takes action", urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.

Reconciliation is a journey – as we move forward as a nation, through respectful and heartfelt relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community.

Register your service’s NRW activity, with events held nation-wide each year.
