WHAT'S ON

BADAC receives alerts from various agencies and organisations about public events that may be of interest to the local Aboriginal community.

We also either host or participate in events that benefit our local community.

BADAC recognises that the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) peoples in Australia is marked by many significant dates and milestones. It is important to celebrate our history, be it a sad event or a proud achievement.

Art Expo

Thank you to everyone that came out and supported the Art Expo & Fundraiser on Monday 16th May to help raise funds for a basketball court at our community centre. It was a great night enjoyed by many and there was some great artwork on display. 

Well done to all involved in organising the night! Here are a few photos of the night.
