Reconciliation Australia

Reconciliation Australia is an independent not-for-profit organisation and the national body for reconciliation. Reconciliation Australia promotes and facilitates reconciliation by building relationships, respect and trust between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Three program areas deliver services, resources and advice to support reconciliation action within Australian early learning services, schools, universities, businesses, community groups, and government organisations:

  • Reconciliation Action Plans (RAP)
  • Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Education
  • Indigenous Governance Program

Reconciliation Australia’s work is underpinned by research in the State of Reconciliation in Australia Report and the Australian Reconciliation Barometer.

National Reconciliation Week  27 May – 3 June is Reconciliation Australia’s flagship public event.

Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Education

Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Education program has resources and tools for schools and early learning services to contribute to the reconciliation movement.

Through the Narragunnawali online platform, schools and early learning services can develop a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), and teachers and educators can access professional learning and curriculum resources to support the implementation of reconciliation initiatives.

Narragunnawali (pronounced narra-gunna-wally) is a word from the language of the Ngunnawal people, Traditional Owners of the land on which Reconciliation Australia’s Canberra office is located. Narragunnawali means alive, wellbeing, coming together and peace, and is used with permission of the United Ngunnawal Elders Council.
