Commemorative services to mark 20th anniversary of Bali bombings

Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the 2002 Bali bombings in which 202 people, including 88 Australians, were tragically killed, and many others injured.

This anniversary will be a difficult day for many in Australia, Indonesia and around the world, and our thoughts are with the survivors, families and loved ones of those killed.

The Australian Government will host a memorial service at Parliament House in Canberra to mark the anniversary on 12 October 2022.

A commemorative ceremony will also be held on 12 October at the Australian Consulate General in Bali, Indonesia.

We will pay tribute to the courage and resilience shown by so many whose lives were forever changed by these attacks.

The Australian Government welcomes survivors and their family and friends, and the family and friends of loved ones lost, to attend the memorial service or ceremony. The Australian Government also extends an invitation to those involved in the response to the blast to attend the memorial services.
