Bathurst Regional Council 2024 NAIDOC Week Celebration


NAIDOC Week 2024 will be held nationally from Sunday 7 July to Sunday 14 July 2024.

Council will celebrate NAIDOC Week during the school term, with an event taking place on Wednesday 3 July 2024 at Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre.

The 2024 NAIDOC Week theme is ‘Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud & Proud’.

In celebration of the 2024 NAIDOC Week theme, Bathurst Regional Council has collaborated with Loveridge Digital, First Nations community members, Elders, schools and service providers to produce a short film, Miil Bulal.The film will premiere at Council’s NAIDOC Week event, followed by a flag raising ceremony and lunch.

Miil Bulal (both eyes – Wiradjuri) will take you on a journey through the Bathurst First Nations Community. Hear the magical sounds of young men playing the didgeridoo, flow through the mighty Wambuul with Elders as they share their Biladurang dreaming story, go back to the classroom to immerse yourself in Wiradjuri language and dance, travel to the foot of Wahluu as you put yourself in a student’s shoes at Wammarra, and shrink yourself to see through the eyes of pre-schoolers.

Miil Bulal will introduce you to many First Nations community members who are paving the way for future generations, keeping the fire burning and being blak, loud & proud!

Council invites you to attend this celebration:

Date:               Wednesday 3 July 2024
