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. 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.
