Where is it? The Kimberley, Arnhem Land, Kakadu, the Tiwi Islands.
Our European ancestors wrote everything down in the history books, a practical way of recounting the past. The Aboriginals were more creative, however, and formed a beautiful, delicate art form to help them express cultural historical events and Dreamtime stories dating back thousands of years, using symbols and emblems that they’ve passed down through centuries. The best way to learn about aboriginal art is to meet the artists themselves. Aboriginal art community tours can be booked through small-group tour operator Aboriginal Art Connections. Experiencing Australia through the eyes of its original inhabitants will give you a whole new perspective on the land we call home, and quite possibly change your mind about some long-held misconceptions.
