When the First Fleet arrived in Australia over two centuries ago, the country was declared ‘empty’ and claimed for Great Britain. Following that declaration, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people suffered many injustices. 

Centuries later, Reconciliation Week is a chance for all Australians to explore First Nations culture, find out more about the Aborignal experience and consider what we can all do to reconcile our nation’s past. 

To get involved, check out our guide to free local Indigenous history tours, enjoying First Nations-inspired cuisine and shopping the work of Aboriginal makers and creatives.
