The South Australia NAIDOC March and Family Fun Day is one of the biggest events on the NAIDOC calendar.
The event hosts over 40 stall holders from government and non-government organisations in Victoria Square, attracting hundreds of supporters to enjoy a day of commemoration and celebration of the Indigenous culture, while providing a number of delicious food stalls, interactive activities for all ages and a free concert from a range of local Indigenous artists.
The history behind NAIDOC and the marches, that are held around Australia, begun in the 1920s when Aboriginal rights groups boycotted Australia Day, in protest against the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.
This years’ weather was unfavourable but it did not stop our SA team from marching proudly with hundreds of other supporters from Tarntanyangga (Victoria Square) to the steps of Parliament House, before returning to Victoria Square, where the Family Fun Day kicked off.
As an Indigenous owned and operated company, Intract Australia were proud to host a stall at the Family Fun Day, with a number of senior management and staff from Intract and McMahon Services visiting throughout the day.
We also had our team who are based out in Woomera and Cultana join in on the NAIDOC celebrations in Port Augusta.
