Survival Day 2021

We who come from many places acknowledge the welcome that continues to be offered to us by the traditional custodians of this land.

We recognise that this land always has been Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land and always will be.
Every day, we work to welcome new Australians from across the world. As we do this, we acknowledge the history and current realities of First Nations people. We understand our individual and collective responsibility towards the achievement of justice, equality and reconciliation.
On this Survival Day, we encourage all Australians to increase our understanding of Indigenous Australian perspectives of 26 January.
Our partners at SBS feature a selection of dedicated programming, special events and news highlights on what Australia Day, the country's national day means for many.  Go to to learn more.

Acknowledgement of country
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of all the lands on which we meet, work and live and recognise that this land has always been and always will be Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land.


Multicultural Australia respects and values Australia’s First Nation peoples’ enormous resilience, courage, determination and often unrecognized contributions to this country’s social and economic development. We walk together in solidarity in the shared pain of the past and with shared hope for the future.
