To most visitors and locals, Darwin is a vibrant, tropical city in the Top End. Although not always obvious, Darwin is also a living Aboriginal cultural landscape. There are as many ways of seeing Aboriginal Darwin as there are Aboriginal people.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: from the harbour to the beaches, monsoon forests, gardens, parks, camping places, exhibitions, cultural displays, as well as more recent buildings in the CBD, and includes information about sites not accessible to visitors.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.
