Celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is celebrated nationally 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 your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
The Orange community celebrates NAIDOC Week in November each year due to the routinely cold weather in the middle of the year. Events usually include a street march and community activities in Robertson Park.
The events are organised by the local Aboriginal community in conjunction with Orange City Council.
NAIDOC stands for the National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. The acronym NAIDOC has since become the name of the week itself.
Local community celebrations during NAIDOC Week are encouraged and often organised by communities, government agencies, local councils, schools and workplaces.
