Campbelltown NAIDOC street parade 2019: pictures

NAIDOC week celebrations were alive and well in Campbelltown this morning.

Locals were out in force in the CBD to take part in Campbelltown Council's annual flag-raising ceremony and street parade to kick off NAIDOC Week celebrations on Monday, July 8.

NAIDOC Week celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as Australia's First Peoples.

Campbelltown mayor George Brticevic said the whole community could help celebrate this year's NAIDOC Week theme - 'Voice, Treaty, Truth: Let's work together for a shared future'.

"As part of our commitment to reconciliation, I encourage all residents and community groups, cultures and service to join our NAIDOC Week celebrations and actively pursue unity to create a stronger, brighter and more inclusive future for everyone in Campbelltown," he said.

"We value the cultural lessons and the knowledge of country that our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community takes the time to share with us."

The street parade was followed by a free community day at Bradbury Park.

A NAIDOC touch football competition will be held at Minto's Benham Oval on Wednesday, July 10, run by the council and Campbelltown police.
