Reconciliation Week in Kalgoorlie-Boulder

Past Event

National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The dates are the same each year: 27 May to 3 June.

These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the Australian reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.

The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2023 is Be a Voice for Generations.

This theme encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we live, work and socialise.

For the work of generations past, and the benefit of generations future, act today for a more just, equitable and reconciled country for all.

We hope you can join us at the events and activities happening around the city:
