NAIDOC Week update

Due to uncertainty regarding COVID-19 restrictions next week, we have made the difficult decision to postpone some of our face to face NAIDOC Week events.

If an event you’ve booked has been rescheduled we will change your ticket to the new date. If you can’t make it, please cancel your ticket and we can pass it on to someone else. 

If your event has been cancelled, have a look out on the City of Vincent facebook page during NAIDOC Week, we’ll be posting some videos online during the week. 

For more information call us on 9273 6000.

NAIDOC Week is a time to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This year's NAIDOC Week theme is Heal Country!

Join us for a series of free community events to celebrate this important week.
