NAIDOC week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC week is usually held in July, but COVID-19 resulted in the week being postponed to November 8th to 15th this year, with the theme for 2020 being Always Was, Always Will be.

Yesterday's ADAP showed the plaque at the MRO in Geraldton, WA, and today's image shows the corresponding plaque for the Narrabri Observatory. The design features five rotating shapes that simulate movement and progression and combine imagery relating to boomerangs and eucalyptus leaves. The five boomerangs symbolise the scientific opportunities, employment, education outreach, Indigenous knowledge and improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This original artwork design was commissioned by CSIRO and created by Marcus Lee, a proud Aboriginal descendant of the Karajarri people.
