Hepburn Shire Council celebrates NAIDOC week 2017!

We are pleased to present our NAIDOC week activities for 2017. NAIDOC week is held each year across Australia in July to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture.

The official NAIDOC website outlines that NAIDOC originally stood for “National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee.” The committee was responsible for organising celebratory activities nation-wide. The acronym has since become the name of the week itself and celebrations are hosted or organised by communities, governments and workplaces. Click here or the logo above to find out more information on the history of NAIDOC week.
