The town hall in Boulder, Western Australia was the scene of a celebration of three decades of Indigenous health care by Bega Garnbirringu on Saturday.
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health care centre in Egan Street, the name of which translates as 'sickness gets better', turns 30 years old this year and the milestone was celebrated in style at the Black Pearl Ball.
Bega chief executive Wayne Johnson said the organisation owed its very existence to community demand.
'Thirty years ago a community petition brought Bega into existence. The Aboriginal community members added their names to the petition to say we want our own health service.' Mr Johnson said.
