Appin Massacre Memorial Flag Raising Ceremony
Campbelltown City Council also holds a memorial flag raising ceremony in the forecourt of the Campbelltown City Council building to remember those who perished and to show Council’s commitment to Reconciliation.
The Massacre of men, women and children of the Dharawal Nation occurred near here on 17 April 1816.
Fourteen were counted this day, but the real number will never be known.
We acknowledge the impact this had and continues to have on the Aboriginal people of this land.
We are deeply sorry. We will remember them.
