NAIDOC Week

​​​​​​​NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life.

The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support our local Aboriginal community here on Gumbaynggirr Country.

As part of the NAIDOC Week celebrations Council and the Yandaarra Aboriginal Consultative Committee hold the Grace Roberts Community Development Awards​ to acknowledge individuals who, like Grace Roberts have made a significant contribution to enhancing the quality of life of Aboriginal people in the Coffs Harbour area.

Each year the Coffs Harbour area enjoys a full week of NAIDOC activities, entertainment, culture and Aboriginal heritage. A calendar of events is coordinated by the committee at CHASE (Coffs Harbour Aboriginal Social Events), and planned with associated organisations and agencies. Events cover sport, food, art and culture and are open to the whole Coffs Harbour Community and all are welcome.

2019 NAIDOC Week 7-14 July celebrations:

NAIDOC Week 2019 will celebrate the Indigenous voice that includes know-how, practices, skills and innovations. Voice. Treaty. Truth. were three key elements to the reforms set out in the Uluru Statement from the Heart. These reforms represent the unified position of First Nations Australians.
