For First Nation people, the country is more than just the land we all stand on. It’s culture, family and everything that makes us who we are.

This NAIDOC Week celebration - Heal Country - is an appeal to recognise, protect and maintain all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture for all Australians. 

Deepen your understanding of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture by watching an Aboriginal film, learning one of the oldest languages in the world or by taking a virtual tour on the history of the Gadigal Aboriginal people.
