Australians from all walks of life are being invited to participate in a series of activities to celebrate NAIDOC Week.

The South West Aboriginal Medical Service will host an elders lunch on July 5 and a family fun day on July 6.

Service chief executive officer Lesley Nelson said NAIDOC Week celebrated the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people.

“It’s an important event on our calendar and it’s an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate our culture through these events,” she said.

“It’s also important that we recognise our history and celebrate the achievements of indigenous people in the community and showcase that to the next generation.”
