Dover Beach Plaque Unveiling

Join us at 12 noon on July 9th to commemorate the raising of the Aboriginal flag on Dover Beach.

On 2nd November 1976, two Aboriginal men landed on Dover beach, and planted the Aboriginal flag, symbolically claiming the land for Indigenous Australians by virtue of possession. One of them was the famous activist Paul Coe. In 2022, commissioned by Border Crossings’ ORIGINS Festival, Paul’s daughter Jasmine Coe is designing a plaque to be installed permanently on Dover beach as a memorial to these events. The plaque will be unveiled by the artist on July 9th during a free public event.
12:00pm - 13:00pm. Free
