We proudly observe NAIDOC Week, which is held each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.


National and local events held during NAIDOC (‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’) Week showcase the profound beauty and enduring impact of the oldest continuous living cultures on earth.

As part of our Indigenous Strategy, Deakin is committed to Reconciliation and Treaty, advancing the educational aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, and moving Indigenous Knowledges into the mainstream of Australian life. All our endeavours aim to reflect Australia’s full history and seek to build an inclusive future.

We encourage you to attend Deakin and community events during NAIDOC Week.
