Taking place between 27 May to 3 June, Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
The road to reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians has been long and is ongoing. While progress has been made such as the 1967 referendum which counted indigenous Australians in the census for the first time and landmark Mabo decision in 1992, there is still significant work left to do.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people still experience discrimination, disadvantage, and poor health outcomes, a result not only of colonisation but also ongoing structural inequities that disadvantage indigenous Australians.
The theme for 2023 is Be a Voice for Generations which encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we live, work and socialise.
There are a wide range of ways to get involved with Reconciliation Week, with a number of events taking place across the country.

Flourish Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land, sea and waterways upon which we live and work. While we work across the country, our head office is located on the land of the Wangal people.
