2023 Lowitja O’Donoghue Oration

The Don Dunstan Foundation is proud to present the 16th annual Lowitja O’Donoghue Oration.This year’s Oration will be delivered by the Prime Minister, the Hon Anthony Albanese MP, on Monday 29 May 2023. Mr Albanese will be the first sitting Prime Minister to be the Orator at the event which is held each year during National Reconciliation Week.

The Oration honours the influential Aboriginal leader, Dr Lowitja O’Donoghue AC CBE DSG, and seeks to highlight vital issues for Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Oration is presented by the Don Dunstan Foundation in collaboration with Reconciliation SA; The University of Adelaide; Flinders University; the Lowitja Institute and the Lowitja O’Donoughe Foundation.

After the Prime Minister delivers the Oration, there will be a Question and Answer session. You are invited to suggest a question to be asked of the Prime Minister when you check-out your ticket booking.

You may also like to purchase a Pay It Forward ticket that can be provided to a member of the community who might not otherwise be able to attend.
