The New South Wales Reconciliation Council is the peak representative body for reconciliation in NSW. Our vision is to create a reconciled, just and equitable community for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians. Our membership is currently made up of Reconciliation Groups and individuals across NSW – Indigenous and non-Indigenous people working together to advance reconciliation in their communities.
Reconciliation: Justice, Equality & Healing
NSW Reconciliation Council acknowledges the traditional owners of country throughout New South Wales and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respect to them and their cultures; and to elders both past and present.
We acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora nation as the original custodians of the land on which our office sits.
National Reconciliation Week 2016
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is held annually between 27 May – 3 June. Each year, NRW presents an important opportunity for all Australians to reflect on the past, present and future of our nation’s reconciliation journey. 2016 marks 25 years of reconciliation in Australia, and the NSW Reconciliation Council is proud to invite you to join us in celebrating this significant milestone in our nation’s history.
- Read about our nation’s progress towards reconciliation with our summary of “The State of Reconciliation in Australia” report, and our open letter to Premier Mike Baird urging action on the report’s findings.
- Spread the word on social media with our NRW 2016 Facebook banner and social media avatar, or using the hashtag #NRW2016.

- Attend “I’m Not Racist, But…” or our local reconciliation groups’ NRW events.
