The Gold Coast NAIDOC Committee would like to thank you in advance for sharing NAIDOC Week with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community of the Gold Coast region.

Our Committee comprises of dedicated volunteer who are committed to showcasing the resilience and humility of the oldest living culture in the world, our culture, your culture.

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself.
