The garden commemorates the victims of the Bali bombing of 2002 and especially remembers the Sturt Football Club members who lost their lives.

On 12 October 2002, as a result of a terrorist attack in Bali, Indonesia, many people include members of the Sturt Football Club lost their lives. This memorial garden has been provided by the Unley community as a lasting reminder of the devastating impact of such incidents and to the importance of pursuing peace throughout the world.

When the terrorist bomb exploded in Kuta on 12th October, 2002 among the innocent victims were members of many football clubs on their end-of-season trips. South Australia`s Sturt Football Club had great reason for celebration as they had just won the 2002 Premiership. Tragically many members of the club were in the vicinity of Sari Club and Paddy`s Bar on that fateful night and two members lost their lives.
