New addition - map of Aboriginal Australia

Date posted: 28 August 2009

The Aboriginal Australia map has been added to the website. It represents work carried out for the Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia and was created by David Horton. Using the published resources available between 1988 and 1994, the map attempts to represent language, tribal or nation groups of Australia's Indigenous peoples. However, it indicates only the general location of larger groupings of people, which may include smaller groups, such as clans, dialects or individual languages in a group. Boundaries are not intended to be exact and are not suitable for use in native title and other land claims.


A copy of the map can be purchased directly from Australian Studies Press, ph:(02) 6261 4200, email:, or by ordering from your local bookseller
