20 year Bali Memorial service in Unley

October 11, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

On the 12th October 2002, bombs exploded in two busy nightspots - the sari and Paddy's Bar in Bali as well as one in front of the American consulate. The resulting explosions killed 202 people, 88 of whom were Australian. This was the largest single loss of Australian life carried out due to an act of terror. I was asked to photograph the ceremony and this is the picture I chose. Sturt Football Club supporters along with The Governor General and local officials during the 20 year Bali Memorial Service at St Augustine of Canterbury Church in Unley, Adelaide, Wednesday, October 12, 2022.
