AIATSIS Wall Map of Indigenous Australia
This version of the AIATSIS Wall Map of Indigenous Australia comes laminated, with wooden hanging rails attached.
This map is a perfect take-home product for tourists and anyone interested in the diversity of Australia’s First Nations peoples.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia is made up of many different and distinct groups, each with their own culture, customs, language and laws.
This map represents the general locations of these groups and their languages and more; but not exact or fixed boundaries. It serves as a reminder of the richness and diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia.
It was created in 1996 as part of the Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia and some of the information shown on the map remains contested today.
Explore this map and learn about the alternative spellings of names; and also the online interactive map and language databases on the AIATSIS website.
