Annual Sorry Day Commemoration in the Balaangala Gardens.

May 29 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm AEST

Each May, the Balaangala Community Group comes together to acknowledge and pay respect to members of the Stolen Generations and to hear their stories. We recognise the impacts of the Government policy that condoned removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, and ongoing impacts in their families and communities. Only from this place of recognition can we move forward together.

The annual Ceremony in the beautiful Balaangala gardens takes place on the weekend closest to Sorry Day: this year Sunday 29th May.

Everyone is welcome to attend this event, to remember, reflect and participate in a shared journey of healing. Stay for a chat over afternoon tea- including lemon myrtle tea brewed from leaves grown in the gardens-or take a quiet wander along its pathways.

There is no cost to attend this event and you can just turn up, however an rsvp is appreciated for catering purposes. For more information, please email balaangalathegap@gmail.com
