Running nationally from 8 - 15 July 2018, NAIDOC Week recognises our essential, active and significant female role models who are at community, local, state and national levels. NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) Week's theme 'Because of Her, We Can' celebrates the contributions Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made and continue to make in communities, families and the world.

The NAIDOC Week Exhibition kicks off the celebration and runs from 30 June to 14 October daily, from 10am to 3pm at the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre, Melbourne Museum, 11 Nicholson St, Carlton. The focus is on those quiet achievers, strong advocates and Victorian Aboriginal women of the 20th century; foundations of our First People community today.

Museum entry tickets are $15, but if you're a museum member, its free. Why not become a member, as it gives you free general entry to Melbourne Museum, Scienceworks, the Immigration Museum, and much more. To participate and celebrate NAIDOC, check the website for all other events in all states, pertaining to it.

Other NAIDOC Events

There's a range of other events that may interest you on the website. The First Peoples Exhibition tells the story of Aboriginal Victoria from the time of Creation to today. You could follow the Milarri Garden Trail and learn about indigenous flora and fauna, and the traditional uses of these plants. Don't forget to stop and admire the Wurreka, an etched zinc wall that spans the north wall of Birrarung Gallery and surrounds the entry to First Peoples.

The museum on the whole has lots of other events and workshops to keep you coming back. To see updates and follow the conversations about NAIDOC, head to the National NAIDOC and Vic NAIDOC Facebook pages.
