Australian Aboriginal culture

Aboriginal culture in Australia is not easy to discover. For a long time it wasn’t taught at school, no wonder only 35% of Australians believe they have a high level of knowledge about Aboriginal culture [1].

I think anybody who does a course on Aboriginal culture just sees Australia so differently. It's very enlightening and gives another dimension to being Australian.—Anna Bell, co-ordinator Aboriginal Support Group Manly Warringah Pittwater [3]
