  • Canterbury Bankstown Council will celebrate NAIDOC Week 2024 with a program of community activities and events taking place across the City.

    NAIDOC Week is an opportunity to celebrate the significance of our Aboriginal heritage and the important contribution of the Canterbury Bankstown’s Aboriginal population make in our community and across our vibrant City.

    The program of events will celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, history and heritage; as well as embrace the NAIDOC 2024 theme, ‘Keep the fire burning! Blak, Loud and Proud’. The theme honours the enduring strength and vitality of First Nations culture – with fire a symbol of connection to Country, to each other, and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

     Our 2024 NAIDOC Week program includes:
