What do you think about a future referendum being held in Australia to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our Constitution?

The Referendum Council invites all Australians to have their say on constitutional recognition and continue an open and constructive national conversation about this important issue. 

There are a number of ways you can join the conversation, including by completing a formal submission to the council using the form below. You can also email your submission to the council at

Before you complete your submission, you should read the council’s discussion paper, or a plain English introduction to the issues.

Submissions will close 8 May 2017. We look forward to hearing your views.
