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 explore how we can contribute to reconciliation in Australia.

Reconciliation Week is held annually from 27 May to 3 June to mark two milestones in Australia's history - the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision in 1992.

This year’s theme, “Now More Than Ever,” reminds us that no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will—and must—continue.

We hope you’ll be both informed and inspired by our Reconciliation Week events, contributing to your personal reconciliation actions this year.
