Friends, families and victims will gather in Sydney's eastern suburbs to commemorate the Bali bombings' 11th anniversary.

Eighty-eight Australians were killed when bombs detonated at two popular nightclub spots in Bali's tourist hub Kuta.

Forty-three of those who died on October 12, 2002 were from NSW and 20 from Sydney's eastern suburbs, including Coogee, Maroubra, Malabar and Matraville.

A large crowd is expected to descend on Dolphin Point at Coogee on Saturday morning for the annual Bali Memorial Commemoration Ceremony.

Randwick City Council mayor Scott Nash described the annual ceremony as a special event for the local community, particularly those affected by the bombings.

"Our community has a strong condition of uniting to support each other in times of tragedy and hardship," he said in a statement.

"On this day, as we do every year, we will come together to show our support and care for the victims of the families and survivors.

"And to remember those who we lost."

The ceremony, which will include tributes from family members, performances and a minute silence, will start at 10am.
