Apology documents Parliament House Canberra


I am delighted to have been able to visit Parliament House in Canberra today to see for the first time the Apology to the Forgotten Australians & Child Migrants housed so beautifully.



Diagonally opposite is the glass Coolamon and the Apology to Australia's indigenous Peoples.



How apt it is that the Clifton Pugh portrait of Gough Whitlam who did so much for our indigenous peoples, looks on close by.

All these documents can be found in the Prime Minister's portrait gallery level one at the house on the hill.
