Despite its bustling urban presence, Sydney has a rich and complex Aboriginal heritage. Hidden within its burgeoning city landscape, lie layers of a vibrant culture and a turbulent history. But, you need to know where to look. Aboriginal Sydney supplies the information.

Both a guide book and an alternative social history, it is told through precincts of significance to the city’s Indigenous people. The sites within the precincts, and their accompanying stories and photographs, evoke Sydney’s ancient past, and allow us all to celebrate the living Aboriginal culture of today.

Sites to visit include:

  • rock art and middens in national parks
  • points of early contact and conflict around the harbour
  • sites of ‘civilising experiments’ in the west
  • places of protest, civil rights action and community pride in Redfern and La Perouse
  • cultural centres, galleries, museums and theatres.
November 2010, pb, 240x170mm, 200pp, full colour.
