GPT supports and celebrates National Reconciliation Week


Each year National Reconciliation Week (NRW) celebrates and builds on the respectful relationships shared by First Nations People and other Australians.

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.

The dates that bookend the week are significant milestones in the reconciliation journey.

May 27 - Marks the anniversary of Australia’s most successful referendum and a defining event in our nation’s history. The 1967 referendum saw over 90 per cent of Australians vote to give the Commonwealth the power to make laws for First Nations People and recognise them in the national census.

3 June - Commemorates the High Court of Australia’s landmark Mabo decision in 1992, which legally recognised that First Nations People have an inextricable connection to the land - a connection that existed prior to colonialisation and still exists today. This recognition paved the way for land rights or Native Title.

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

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.
