The annual Flag Raising Ceremony officially marks the beginning of NAIDOC Week. It brings members of the community together to publicly commemorate the importance of NAIDOC week. The event honours continued connection to culture, country, and language of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with a Smoking Ceremony, Welcome to Country and a moment of silence for our people who have gone before us.

NAIDOC week is an opportunity for our people to come together in a positive and cultural context – encouraging families, community and elders together and to recognise the enormous contribution that Indigenous Australians make to the community.

The Flag Raising Ceremony is building in momentum with more and more organisations and government bodies coming out to mark the beginning of NAIDOC week. We encourage them, as well as community, to come along in 2018.
