Bathurst Regional Council paid tribute to National Sorry Day on Wednesday afternoon, with a planting of a native lilac hibiscus at the PJ Moodie Courtyard at the civic centre.
National Sorry Day is a day to acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generations Survivors and reflect on how everyone can play a part in the healing process for the Stolen Generations.
The native lilac hibiscus has been approved by the National Stolen Generations Alliance as the official symbol for the day due to it being found widely across Australia and its survival skills and colours denoting and spiritual healing.
"This is a healing process," Stolen Generations survivor Sandra Peckham said.
"We have a voice for all Indigenous people in Australia."
