Hon Anthony Albanese MP, Prime Minister of Australia delivered the 16th annual Lowitja O’Donoghue Oration at Bonython Hall in Adelaide on Monday 29 May during National Reconciliation Week.

The Oration honours the influential Aboriginal leader, Dr Lowitja O’Donoghue AC CBE DSG and gives voice to vital issues for our nation’s first people.

This was the first time a sitting Prime Minister has delivered the Oration, and the Prime Minister spoke about “A Moment to Unite” and the importance of constitutional recognition for First Nations peoples.

The Foundation is proud to collaborate with Reconciliation South Australia, The University of Adelaide and Flinders University for each year’s Oration and, in 2023, welcomed new presenting partners the Lowitja Institute and the Lowitja O’Donoghue Foundation.
