Today marks the day of the survival of Aboriginal people in Australia, despite a past (and present) of wrongdoing and the efforts to “smooth the dying pillow”.
Australia was, is, and always will be Aboriginal Land.
If you’re in Sydney and want to avoid the throngs of celebrations, I suggest taking this self-guided walk from Tamarama to Bondi. Along the walk you will see sites that are significant to the traditional custodians, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.
Look beyond the pram-pushers and activewear couples to see the Real Australia.
