Australia has been populated for tens of thousands of years, which means there is plenty of it to discover. We have a rich multicultural society, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures that we can be proud of. Take the time to find out about them—they’re an important part of our history and our identity.
Ask your local Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander land council/group or research it online. There are so many stories and histories to uncover.
Why not check out the amazing abundance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art? It’s everywhere!
