This is Stop 3 on the Bondi to Coogee Walk as marked on the Coogee to Bondi Walk Map.

This towering bronze statue, weighing nearly one tonne, honours everyone who died in the Bali bombings.

“It is a tribute to the Australian spirit of courage and endurance. The three linked figures in this sculpture signify family, friends and community. Bowed in sorrow and remembrance, they comfort, support and protect each other.

The figures also symbolise life, growth, hope and our strength in unity. Individually, each figure could be easily toppled, but joined together they form a strong and supported whole structure.”

Ian Wells grew up in Sydney surrounded by Cronulla surf beaches, Port Hacking and Royal National Park, developing a love of the outdoors from an early age.

After nearly a decade travelling the world, he returned home to realise his own backyard was as extraordinary as the places he‘d seen.

With the advantage of local knowledge and a belief that the best natural beauty can only be experienced by foot, he founded Sydney Coast Walks in 2009.

Sydney Coast Walks also provides supervised hikes for the Duke of Ed Award. Coming soon, Ian will co-host new podcast This Hiking Life with his wife Tara Wells.
