Heritage Places

Aboriginal Heritage

The National Trail acknowledges the Aboriginal people of Australia as the traditional custodians of the land over which the Trail passes. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

Where appropriate, we encourage Trail users to explore the Aboriginal heritage around the Trail and find out more about the Dreaming stories associated with various land-forms and features. Many links provided below feature Aboriginal heritage.

We ask all Trail users to be respectful of sacred sites and places of significance.
