NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July (Sunday 7 July to Sunday 14 July) to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

This year’s theme is Voice, Treaty, Truth. The Indigenous voice of this country is over 65,000 plus years old and it is that Indigenous voice that include know-how, practices, skills and innovations. And with 2019 being celebrated as the United Nations International Year of Indigenous Languages, it’s time for Indigenous knowledge to be heard through voice.
 
NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. 

Modern Native Australian Recipe Collection
To celebrate NAIDOC Week, Stockland presents our Native Australian recipe collection which combines traditional Indigenous cuisine with a modern twist. Such recipes include a Double Chocolate Wattleseed Cheesecake, Kangaroo Spaghetti Bolognese. Whole Fish in Paperback and Saltbush Dukkah Crusted Kangaroo. Be sure to try these recipes at home over the course of NAIDOC Week.
