Australians celebrate or commemorate a number of special days throughout the year.
These special days give us the chance to reflect on the past, appreciate our lives, and look to the future together. Australians mark National Sorry Day on 26 May each year. This special day is a time to reflect on how government wrongdoings have affected and continue to affect Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their cultures. It is also a time to consider what reconciliation means for the future of all Australians.
