Our Journey

Background of Bega Garnbirringu Health Service

In 1983 Aboriginal People of the Goldfields came together concerned about the health and welfare of the Aboriginal People of the region.

Following this meeting a petition was circulated which attracted over 300 signatures calling for the formation and the establishment of the Kalgoorlie Aboriginal Medical Service.

The Kalgoorlie Aboriginal Medical Service was established in 1982 which is today known as Bega Garnbirringu Health Service.

Below is a copy of the petition.



We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this land and
pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
