Always Was, Always Will Be.

As reflected on the NAIDOC organising committee website, NAIDOC Week 2020 acknowledges and celebrates that our nation’s story didn’t begin with documented European contact whether in 1770 or 1606 - with the arrival of the Dutch on the western coast of the Cape York Peninsula.

The very first footprints were those belonging to First Nations Peoples. For us, this nation’s story began at the dawn of time.
