Efforts by a group of concerned Australians to construct a "peace park" at the bombing site of a 2002 terrorist attack on a Bali night spot received a boost when the Australian parliament declared contributions towards securing the land and building the park are now tax deductible.
The former Sari Club was one of two nightclubs targeted by terrorists on October 12, 2002, that killed 202 people, 88 of whom were Australians.
The controversial park project is planned to include a small museum and meditative gardens.
The special tax status for contributions to the park have buoyed the spirits of the Bali Peace Park Association who has been bogged down in the past with internecine conflicts in trying to establish a permanent memorial in Bali to the bombing victims.
