National Sorry Day


National Sorry Day is held on 26 May each year to acknowledge and recognise members of Australia’s Stolen Generations.

The day also gives people from all walks of life and backgrounds the chance to come together and share the steps towards healing for the Stolen Generations, their families and communities.

National Sorry Day marks the anniversary of the tabling in Federal Parliament of the Bringing Them Home Report of the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from Their Families. The report was tabled on 26 May, 1997.

Help us mark National Reconciliation Week and National Sorry Day by attending our special Cultural Event.
