Annotation: To most visitors and locals, Darwin is a vibrant, tropical city in the "top end" of Australia. Although not always obvious to visitors, Darwin is also a living Aboriginal cultural landscape. Aboriginal Darwin peels back layers to show the rich heritage and complex cultures of Aboriginal people, both before and since colonization. The book includes contemporary and historical sites that range from the harbor to the beaches, monsoon forests, gardens, parks, camping places, exhibitions, cultural displays, and buildings, supplemented by information about sites not accessible to visitors. Beautifully illustrated, Aboriginal Darwin's easy-to-use layout allows users to explore at their own pace. Aboriginal Darwin provides insights into the enormous economic, cultural, social, and historical contributions of Aboriginal people to the city.
