Why Join Us?

The Sorry Day Walk is an occasion for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians to come together in the spirit of Reconciliation to commemorate the Stolen Generations. It marks the beginning of National Reconciliation Week and this year recognises 100 years since the first removals of First Nations children in April 1924 from Oodnadatta and the subsequent establishment off the former Colebrook Training Home at Eden Hills, as well as 30 years since the establishment of the Blackwood Reconciliation Group.


What to Expect:

The event will feature a Welcome to Country, cultural performances, speeches from Aboriginal leaders and other dignitaries including the Governor of South Australia, all ages activities and workshops and much more. Participants are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch or purchase from the BBQ or catering vendors and join in the afternoon’s program of events. For further details and updates please visit the BRG Walk Facebook Event.


We look forward to seeing you and your family at this significant local event.
