National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 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 National Reconciliation Week 2024 is a reminder to all of us that the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples must continue.
