This Is Where They Travelled
'This Is Where They Travelled' profiles the lives of a number of Aboriginal people who lived around the coastal part of Sydney between the early 1800s and the 1930s. To outsiders, these people seemed to have lost the ‘authentic’ Aboriginality of their ancestors. However their travel tells a different story, as they continued to move, marry and live almost exclusively within areas which they were connected to by ancestry.
