The City of Bunbury is proud to support NAIDOC Week 2024 and encourages the community to do the same as we celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

In Goomburrup (Bunbury) we have a strong and proud First Nations community, and while we have a long way to go, we are committed to continuing our reconciliation journey.

There will be a number of events, workshops and celebrations across Bunbury during NAIDOC Week, which runs from Sunday 7 July through to 14 July.

Local events taking place

The week-long celebrations will kick off with a breakfast barbecue at 8am at the City’s Function Room and Foyer on the Sunday followed by a flag raising and opening ceremony on Monday 8 July from 10.30am at the Graham Bricknell Memorial Music Shell.

Other events and workshops throughout the week include a 3-on-3 basketball tournament at South West Sports Centre, a Bunbury Regional Art Gallery Noongar Arts Program art showcase at Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre, the NAIDOC Ball and Awards and a youth community barbecue and yarning – just to name a few. See our events calendar here.

We will also be lighting up City landmarks, including the Koombana Footbridge, throughout the week as part of celebrations.
