27 May - 3 June

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land and pay our respect to them and their Elders – both past and present. Erina Fair is located on Darkinjung Country.

Each year from the 27th of May to the 3rd of June Australia acknowledges National reconciliation Week. This is a time for all Australians to pause, reflect and learn about the history and culture of First Nation’s Peoples, and explore ways we can continue to shape Australia into a reconciled nation.

The dates that bookend National Reconciliation Week commemorates two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum (on the 27th of May 1967), and the High Court Marbo decision (on the 3rd of June 1992).

The there for National Reconciliation Week 2022 is Be Brave. Make Change. This theme calls on all Australians to make change beginning with brave actions in our daily lives – where we live, work, play and socialise.

Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organizations, and importantly as a nation. Everyone is encouraged to come together, in person where it is safe to do so and join in conversations as we strive for a more just, equitable nation in an environment of unity and respect.
