Celebrating NAIDOC Week 2021

We are proud to celebrate NAIDOC Week 2021 and recognise and celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This year's theme - Heal Country! – calls for all of us to continue to seek greater protections for our lands, our waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage.

NAIDOC Week colouring-in competition 2021

We're asking the children of the Hunter to enter our colouring-in competition featuring an artwork from our own Where's Our Water? story.

Download a colouring-in sheet below, create an artistic masterpiece using whatever you like (eg pencils, crayons, paint, glitter...), take a photo and email us your entry. In your email include your child's first name and age. Let's work together to save our most precious resource and Heal Country.

Entries close 13 July 2021. Winners will be chosen across three age groups, with each winner receiving a $50 art pack.

'Heal Country, heal our nation'

Protecting and learning from the land and the people who cared for it for millennia is a key component of the environmental approach we take in our operations.

Archaeologist Nicola Roche, who offers us advice as a consultant, says the way in which Australians now use the landscape has led to more and more development.

Where's Our Water story

Our new eBook, Where's Our Water? was written by Aboriginal students from Newcastle High School to help share the value of our most precious resource with children in our community.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Our Reconciliation Action Plan is our promise to move to a place of equity, justice and partnership together. This RAP is a reflection of our commitment to create improved economic, health and social outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
