A memorial wall with the names of all 44 NSW residents killed in the 2002 Bali bomb blasts will be built at a Sydney beach as a permanent reminder of the tragedy.
A crowd of about 300 people gathered at the Bali memorial at Coogee beach on Monday to mark seven years since the attacks on the Sari Club and Paddy's Bar in the popular tourist area of Kuta. Eighty-eight Australians were among the 202 people killed in the attacks.
Twenty of those were from Coogee and surrounding suburbs in eastern Sydney, including six members of the local rugby league team the Coogee Dolphins.
The names of those victims already feature at the memorial site, which has been named Dolphin Point.
Randwick mayor John Procopiadis said a new memorial wall would be built with the names of all NSW victims.
It would make Dolphin Point a central remembrance spot for friends and families of the victims. The memorial wall, to be built by Randwick Council, is set to be unveiled at next year's service.
NSW Premier Nathan Rees told the Coogee service the Bali attacks, the victims and their families must never be forgotten. "We should not let the task of healing morph into forgetfulness," he said.
"A part of us should always remain angry, a part of us should always remain sorrowful and a part of us should always remain in disbelief.
"Otherwise we hand another victory to the terrorists. Bali must never be forgotten. The victims must never be forgotten."
