Deepen your understanding of Indigenous culture in Shepparton & Goulburn Valley

National Reconciliation Week is 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.

National Reconciliation Week runs annually from 27 May to 3 June and invites us to reflect on the significant steps towards a unified nation and to celebrate the contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Shepparton & Goulburn Valley region has the largest First Nations population in regional Victoria and values the richness of their culture and history.

Whether you’re looking to deepen your understanding of Indigenous culture or to honour the journey towards reconciliation, there are numerous to do so when you’re visiting Shepparton & Goulburn Valley throughout the year. We hope this handy guide will help.

As National Reconciliation Week comes to an end, the journey towards reconciliation continues. The locations we've highlighted here serve as powerful reminders of the rich cultural heritage and the ongoing contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. By visiting these sites and connecting with their stories, we can all play a part in building a more inclusive and respectful Australia. Let these experiences inspire us to keep learning, listening, and acting towards a future where the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians is strengthened and celebrated every day. Remember, reconciliation is not just a week-long commitment but a continuous journey.
