About the calendar

The calendar is an opportunity to recognise important historic events, call all Australians to action, and celebrate the culture and contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The calendar provides ideas about how to acknowledge or celebrate official events and anniversaries of defining moments in Aboriginal history.
