Children's Week

We'll be celebrating Children's Week again in 2024 - come back to find out what's happening!

Children’s Week is an annual event celebrated in Australia and held around the fourth Wednesday in October. A diverse range of events and activities are organised at National, State and Local levels. These focus the attention of the wider community on children, their rights and achievements. Children’s Week celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities.
