NAIDOC celebrations were held around Australia from 3-10 July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Here’s a gallery of images taken by MCCC team members who attended NAIDOC events in local communities in our region including:

  •  NAIDOC Week official opening ceremony in Albury Wodonga that included a moving Welcome to Country and flag raising.
  •  NAIDOC Flag-Raising ceremonies at the City of Greater Bendigo and Bendigo & District Aboriginal Co-operative on 4 July. We enjoyed the opportunity to support the local community and learn a little more about the local Reconciliation Action Plans for these areas.
  •  NAIDOC March that started at Victorian Aboriginal Health Service, Fitzroy and finished at Federation Square, Melbourne.
