About

Balund-a, located in Tabulam in the far North-East of NSW, within the Bundjalung Nation, is not a correctional centre. The Balund-a program is an innovative residential diversionary program for male and female offenders between 18 and 40 years of age. The program is aimed at reducing re-offending, and developing skills within a culturally sensitive and supportive community environment. The full name for the program is Bugilmah Burube Wullinje Balund-a, and translates roughly to ‘Be good now you have a second chance down by the river’.
