NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia every July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
It's a great opportunity to participate in activities to support our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and recognise the contributions they make to the Blue Mountains.
