Neville Thomas Bonner (1922-99) was born at Franklin Island, a small settlement on the Tweed River NSW.  He helped to change the face of Aboriginal Affairs in Australia during his time as the first Aboriginal to sit in Federal Parliament, as a Senator for Queensland form 1971 to 1983.  In 1979 Bonner was named Australian of the Year and in 1984 he was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia.  Neville Bonner was a founding Director of AHL and served on the Board as Queensland representative for 10 years.  The suburb of Bonner in Canberra bears his name.

AHL acknowledges the Darumbal people as the Traditional Owners of the land on which we operate the hostel. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.
