Aboriginal Australia Map

Louka:

Shows general areas for different Indigenous Peoples in Australia

Shows general areas for different language, tribal or nation groups of Aboriginal Australia

Here is a really interesting map showing the various Aboriginal groups of Australia. When I first saw this I was struck by the huge diversity across Australia.

“The Aboriginal Australia wall map represents work carried out for the Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia. Using the published resources available between 1988 and 1994, the map attempts to represent language, tribal or nation groups of Australia’s Indigenous peoples.”

    I love this map, we have a big copy of it on the wall here and are always checking it for study and other purposes. It is an excellent resource, I highly recommend everyone grab a copy. I have a map here that shows how Palawa tribes (Tasmanian Aboriginal) were settled in different bio-regions, it has some great information on it, I’m not sure how to upload it but I can try emailing it if anyone would like a copy. -Annie
