The Indigenous Gala is a signature event on the University’s annual calendar. It serves as both a major fundraising exercise and an opportunity to promote Indigenous culture to the wider community.

Under the patronage of Dr Patrick Corrigan AM, the event was introduced in 2010 as an art auction designed to raise funds for Indigenous student scholarships, grants and bursaries.

It has since evolved into a celebration of Indigenous culture featuring high profile Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders and entertainers, as well as past and present Indigenous students.

The event attracts over 500 corporate and community attendees from all over Australia and, since 2010, has succeeded in raising almost $2 million to support the university education of Indigenous Australians.
