NAIDOC Week


Celebrations for 2021 NAIDOC Week will be in full swing across Port Stephens from 4 to 11 July after COVID-19 kept crowds away in 2020. The events kick off on Monday, 5 July, with the annual flag-raising ceremony and barbeque breakfast at the Council Administration Building in Raymond Terrace.


The NAIDOC 2021 theme – Heal Country! – calls for all of us to continue to seek greater protections for our lands, our waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration, and destruction. It’s a theme that is particularly relevant this year, according to Port Stephens Mayor Ryan Palmer.


“With the desecration of hugely significant sites at a national level, it’s an important reminder that we need to work together as we plan for the future of Port Stephens to ensure we protect the valuable cultural significance of many sites,” he said.


Other highlights of NAIDOC Week include the Nelson Bay Family Fun Day (7 July) and the special screening of the documentary Grave Injustice (8 July). For more information, visit www.portstephens.nsw.gov.au
