Do you know the meaning of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander place names? What’s the story behind them? It’s time to find out.
From the name of a town or suburb; to a street or bridge; a creek or a bend in the river; mountain; landmark; outcrop; tree – place names are a starting point for sharing Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and cultures. ‘This Place’ invites Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to create a short video about a place name, and the story behind it. The This Place project is produced by ABC in partnership with First Languages Australia.
