Everyone in the Flinders community is invited to join in this year’s NAIDOC Week celebrations being held in South Australia and the Northern Territory from Sunday 3 July to Sunday 10 July.

NAIDOC Week is held in the first week of July each year, and provides an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories.
