NAIDOC 2022 Whitsunday
EVERY YEAR, national NAIDOC celebrations take off right across Australia in the first week of July, to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
NAIDOC stands for National Aboriginal and Islanders Day Observance Committee.
And members of the Whitsunday community are ready to celebrate with special activities.
The team at Whitsunday Jetski Tours are proud to be a part of sharing the story of the Ngaro People through the making of their company work shirts, designed by Arthur Gabey, of the Ngaro People.
Whitsunday Brahmans Rugby League Club Whitsunday will be wearing a special NAIDOC Week jersey for their next home game against Magpies.
The jersey has been designed by former Brahman Leo Gabe and will be auctioned off at the bar immediately after the game on Saturday, July 9.
The Airlie Beach Parkrun group will be joining several other Parkruns across Australia recognising NAIDOC week with a red, black and yellow theme.
The Cooinda Family Centre’s free event Stay ‘N’ Play will celebrate with a morning tea, art and craft activities for kids on July 6 and 7, from 9am to 11am, at 20 Williams Street, Bowen.
A free, family fun day community event – with music, dance, art competition, kids craft, community awards and games by Girudala Community Co-Operative Society Ltd – will take place on Saturday, July 9, in front of the beach soundshell.
