Stolen Generations Memorial GardenPrint Page
A garden established on the site of the old United Mission commemorates aboriginal children who were removed from their homes.
Established in 1908, Bomaderry United Aboriginal Mission (UAM) was one of the first institutions in New South Wales established for Aboriginal children removed from their families under the Aboriginal Protection Act of 1909.
The Stolen Generations were the children of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent who were removed from their families by the Australian Federal and State government agencies and church missions, under acts of their respective parliaments.
