The Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, confirmed on Sunday that she will be in Bali on October 12, for the 10 year anniversary of the Bali bombing.
Memorial services will be held in Bali and in Canberra in memory of the victims and the survivors of the tragic event.
“This is a sad moment that has had a big impact on Australia as a nation as well as for the families of the victims,” Gillard said in her statement.
“The passage of time has healed the physical injuries but it will never shrink our horror at this act of terrorism. We will never forget,” she continued.
The Australian government has offered assistance to victims and their families, those who suffered serious injuries may bring a companion if they wish to attend.
On the first anniversary of the bombing, the families of the 88 Australians who died in the blast received assistance to attend the memorial.
In Canberra an event at parliament House will be led by the Governor General, Quentin Bryce. Activities in Bali are planned around the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Park, with more details to be released closer to the date.
