Aboriginal Darwin: A Guide to Exploring Important Sites of the Past & Present
Aboriginal Studies Press, 2006 - Social Science - 150 pages
To most visitors and locals, Darwin is a vibrant, tropical city in the Top End. Although not always obvious to visitors, Darwin is also a living Aboriginal cultural landscape. Aboriginal Darwin peels back layers to show the rich heritage and complex cultures of Aboriginal people, both before and since colonisation. It includes contemporary and historical sites that range from the harbour to the beaches, monsoon forests, gardens, parks, camping places, exhibitions, cultural displays and buildings in the CBD, supplemented by information about sites not accessible to visitors. Beautifully illustrated, Aboriginal Darwin’s easy-to-use layout allows users to explore at their own pace. There are as many ways of seeing Aboriginal Darwin as there are Aboriginal people. Aboriginal Darwin provides insights into the enormous economic, cultural, social and historical contributions of Aboriginal people to the city.
