Reconciliation Week

Girl having her arm paintedEvery year, Maroondah City Council celebrates Reconciliation Week  between 27 May and 3 June with a range of free events and activities. The week is an opportunity to:

  • acknowledge the traditional owners of the Maroondah land
  • learn more about indigenous culture and heritage
  • celebrate reconciliation amongst all Australians.

Reconciliation Week 2017

The theme for 2017 National Reconciliation Week is Let’s take the next steps.

This National Reconciliation Week we reflect on two significant anniversaries in Australia’s reconciliation journey — 50 years since the 1967 referendum and 25 years since the historic Mabo decision.

As we commemorate these significant milestones, we ask all Australians to be a part of the next big steps in our nation’s reconciliation journey.

Join us for the launch of Reconciliation Week at Maroondah Federation Estate on Friday 26 May for National Sorry Day 2017.

During Reconciliation Week, 27 May to 3 June, Realm Library storytimes will also have an Indigenous theme. Bookings are essential, phone 9800 6430 to make a booking.
