National Youth Week (NYW) is the largest celebration of young people in Australia. And is an Australia, State, Territory and Local Government funded initiative. Thousands of young people aged 12-25 from across Australia get involved in NYW each year, with its main aim to celebrate the achievements and positive contributions of the nation's youth.
Each year Gunnedah gets involved by providing an array of activities and events designed to showcase the talents of our own local youth. Be sure to keep check out the National Youth Week website www.youthweek.com for updates, to see how all of the preparations are going for next year and to find out where you can get involved.

Get Involved! - NAIDOC Week celebrations are held around Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life.
NAIDOC originally stood for 'National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee'. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself.
The Gunnedah NAIDOC Week Committee meets each year to develop a full program of activities and events throughout NAIDOC Week that showcase the rich indigenous history and culture of the region. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support our local Indigenous community.
For more information about NAIDOC Week 2015 please see the NAIDOC Week 2015 Program of Activities.
