I've been looking unsuccessfully for something similar in Melbourne. In lieu of that, we're chucking some roo on the barbie on Wednesday night, and drinking a few beers, or possibly socialist chardonnays, to celebrate having a government that we're not totally and utterly ashamed of any more.

Then we'll get back to being horrified at the current treatment of indigenous peoples, and refugees, in this country.

Success! For those in Melbourne, Fed Square will have the apology on the big telly, and there's a lunchtime concert, midday til 2pm.
