Mourners are streaming into the Garuda Wisna Kencana park in Bali to witness a ceremony to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Bali bombings — some family and friends of victims, some are survivors, others just ordinary people moved by the event.
Adrian Morton of the Coogee Dolphins Rugby League Club said he was here to pay tribute to the six men from the club who lost their lives.
“I lost two of my best mates” said Mr Morton, who was wearing a Coogee Dolphins club shirt.
His close friends, Clint Thompson and Josh Iliffe, died in the blast.
“It brings back a lot of emotions and memories, it means a lot to remember the good times,” Mr Morton said.
About a dozen members of the Dolphins are in Bali for the ceremony.
Richard Poore and his wife, Gil, walked arm in arm past the memorial wall, where the pictures of the dead were placed.
They were on a second honeymoon in Bali when the blast happened. Mr Poore, who worked as a TV cameraman for TV New Zealand, was one of the first on the devastating scene that night.
“I took my camera with me for a while, but I couldn't film any more, we just had to help the injured,” he said.
Kerry Byford made the trip from Perth. Her daughter was at the scene of the bombings.
“We were one of the lucky ones — we brought her home,” she said.
Ms Byford said she was in Bali to pay tribute to the less fortunate families.
Peter Aquilina, from Perth, said he was a regular visitor to Bali and had come with his Indonesian wife, Dian, to pay respects.
“I find what happened extremely sad, I feel like it's my family who died,” said Dian, Javanese woman who had previously lived in Bali.
Prime Minister Julia Gillard and former Prime Minister John Howard will all address the approximately 4000 people, and Opposition leader Tony Abbott will also attend. Hindu, Muslim and Christian religious figures will also take part.
Danny Hanley, whose two daughters were killed in the attacks at Kuta's Jalan Legian, will deliver a reflection, as the family and friends of hundreds of other victims and survivors look on.
