Visit Balibó

By far the best way to understand the Balibó Five story and the work of the Trust is to experience it first-hand.  You can stay in the spectacular Balibó Fort Hotel, take a tour of the Fort Heritage and Cultural Museum, or Australian Flag House (now the Balibó Community Learning Centre), learn about the sacrifices of the Balibó martyrs at a hillside memorial,  or just wander the town at your own pace.

The nearby sukos (villages) of Cova, Leolima and Leohitu will give you a unique view of village life in Timor-Leste.  Balibó is situated in Bobonaro District, a stunning 2.5 hour coastal drive west of Dili, near the border with West Timor.

Donate goods and services
Donations of goods and services are always welcomed in Timor-Leste.  Books, toys, furniture and bedding, learning materials, medical equipment, computers and clothes are just some of the things that can find a useful second life in Timor-Leste.
