NAIDOC Week (5-12 July 2009)

NAIDOC (National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee) Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 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 community.


Museums and Research Collections

Many of the University’s collections have evolved from the interests of individual scientists. Others have been developed specifically to enhance teaching and learning. The collections play a vital role in the University’s core activities and double as a valuable community research resource.
