Aboriginal Australia

Australia’s Aboriginal people have a continuous history spanning more than 80,000 years, the oldest living culture on the planet.

In sharing elements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, heritage and culture we acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community and we pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders past, present and emerging.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised that some content on this website may include images, sounds or depictions of deceased people.

Theirs is the oldest story on Earth and story-telling is deeply ingrained in their every cell. The Aboriginal culture is a living legacy of connection to Country, steeped in spiritual knowledge, custodianship of land, culture, people and the connectedness of all things shared through rituals, art, dance, music, secret stories and journeys. 

The Australian landscape today is a map of the spirits’ journeys and stories created over thousands of years ago describing these journeys. These form the basis for stories that are still told. Aboriginal hosts and guides are keen to share their story and give an insight into their culture, which is often delivered with an engaging humour and deeply moving perspective.
