Track 1: Ngunnawal Country

Tack 1 Ngunnawal Country

This track takes you on a journey into the Aboriginal story of the nation’s capital that goes back at least 20,000 years. In traditional times this area was a meeting place where the Ngunnawal welcomed and hosted groups from the surrounding area to discuss the land, lore and culture. Some of the main tribal groups used the mountains for ceremonial purposes such as initiation, marriage and trading of resources. This is your personal journey into the past, present and future of the Aboriginal history of this region. You are welcomed to this country.
