Join us at the Sydney Opera House for NAIDOC Week, July 8 - 15 in a celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 

The Sydney Opera House honours our First Nations by fostering a shared sense of belonging for all Australians, and we acknowledge the Gadigal people, traditional custodians of Tubowgule, the land on which the Opera House stands.

Eat & Drink

This year our restaurants have curated dishes inspired by native ingredients and flavours to celebrate NAIDOC week.
