Children’s Rights Queensland convenes Children’s Week in Queensland. The week takes place in October each year.

Children's Week 2021

Children’s Week is an annual event celebrated in Australia. A diverse range of events and activities are organised at National, State and Local levels to celebrate the rights of children to enjoy childhood and for the wider community to rejoice in their talents, skills and abilities.
