National Reconciliation Week: 27th of May – 3rd June 2024

‘Now More Than Ever' 

It’s a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements and, to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. 

The Reef Guardian School Program recognises that outstanding management of the Great Barrier Reef can only be achieved through respectful and meaningful relationships with First Nations people. We’d like to encourage you to join us on this journey of reconciliation. 

To support activities within your organisation, resources can be found here: National Reconciliation Week - Reconciliation Australia.
