Summary

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: A Guide to Exploring Important Sites of the Past and Present 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 harbor 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.

There are as many ways of seeing Aboriginal Darwin as there are Aboriginal people. This guide provides insights into the enormous economic, cultural, social and historical contributions of Aboriginal people to the city.

Beautifully illustrated, "Aboriginal Darwin"'s easy-to-use layout allows users to explore at their own pace.
