The 16th anniversary of the October 2002 Bali Bombings will be commemorated at the Bali Memorial, Dolphins Point (Coogee) on Friday 12 October. 

Observed here every year since 2003, the site was renamed in honour of the six members of the local Coogee Dolphins football team who lost their lives along with friends and family members in the bombing attack at the Sari Club in Kuta, Bali.

The memorial sculpture by local artist Sasha Reid depicts three interlinked cast-bronze shapes, symbolising life, growth, hope and the importance of strength in unity.

The reserve also includes a Place of Reflection: a sandstone wall and plaque dedicated to the 43 people from New South Wales who died in the bombings.

The ceremony will commence at 10am and will feature speeches from family members of the victims and Mayor Kathy Neilson, as well as the laying of flowers and the release of 88 doves.

Where:    Dolphins Point, Dunningham Reserve, 2 Baden St, Coogee Beach
When:     Friday 12 October 2018, 10am start 
Cost:       Free
