Aboriginal Australia

Add

The Aboriginal people of Australia have a rich, living culture stretching back at least 50,000 years. Throughout Australia you'll find opportunities to explore and immerse yourself in Aboriginal culture. The Northern Territory is steeped in Aboriginal history: visit Australia's Red Centre and walk around the base of Uluru with an Aṉangu guide, browse Aboriginal art in Alice Springs, and learn of Dreamtime stories in the rock art galleries of World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park. Follow one of our recommended driving routes that will bring you closer to Aboriginal culture, including the Red Centre Way to sacred sites such as Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon, or the Savannah Way to Aboriginal rock art sites in Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia. You can plan your trip around festivals that celebrate Aboriginal arts and culture.
