IMPORTANT ATSI DATES
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.
The full National ATSI Calendar is found here:

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.
