National Reconciliation Week runs from May 27 to June 3 and celebrates achievements in Australia’s journey towards reconciliation, with many events held nationwide.

This year’s theme, Now More Than Ever, serves as a reminder that the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people must continue.

Sunshine Coast Mayor Rosanna Natoli said Council placed a high priority on building stronger relationships with First Nations peoples.

“We value their cultures and heritage and their contribution to the social fabric of our community,” Mayor Natoli said.

“We’re encouraging our community to come together to celebrate the start of National Reconciliation Week and the achievements, commitments, and partnerships with the First Nations community.

“National Reconciliation Week brings Council and our key stakeholders together to support and celebrate reconciliation efforts.”
