Constitutional Recognition

The Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition have established a Referendum Council to lead a national conversation on recognising Indigenous Australians in the Constitution. The Council will provide advice on when a referendum should be held and what the question should be. Recognition means acknowledging our shared history and the value we place on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage.

A successful referendum would be a significant and enduring act of reconciliation.
