The annual event is held on 31 May at the Shrine of Remembrance.
The services gives Victorians an opportunity to come together and honour Aboriginal service men and women.
About the Victorian Aboriginal Remembrance Service
Aboriginal people have served in every conflict and peace keeping mission involving Australia for more than a century. For many years, their service was not recognised.
In 2006, Aunty Dorothy ‘Dot Peters (born 1930, died 2019), sought to change this and initiated the honouring of Aboriginal service men and women in Victoria. In 2007, the first Victorian Aboriginal Remembrance Service was held at the Shrine of Remembrance.
