The first Australians Day: a day in the life of Sydney’s deep past

The first Australians Day: a day in the life of Sydney’s deep past
Yolngu elder Wandjuk Marika described the rock engravings of the northern Sydney Ku Ring Gai peoples as having been made by those ‘guarding the great sheltered waters of the sunrise of their country’. Sydney today is one of the most urbanised parts of Australia. Along with oral histories, stone tool artefacts show not just how people lived, but their art and cultural management. In this talk, Matt Poll, Sydney University Museums, provides glimpses of the remarkable story of Sydney’s Aboriginal history.
