Reconciliation week at Taronga Zoo Sydney 2014

 NATIONAL RECONCILIATION WEEK

 National Reconciliation Week is held annually across Australia from 27 May to 3 June.

Reconciliation Week is a time to celebrate and build on the respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians. During this week Australians celebrate two significant milestones in Australia’s reconciliation history - the anniversaries of the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.
