Aboriginal people living and working on the NSW coast: A historical review

This resource paper considers the ways Aboriginal people have used particular coastal places and landscapes in the recent past. It shows that the beaches, dunes, headlands, estuaries and waters of coastal NSW contain many ‘footprints’ of Aboriginal cultural life. Aboriginal people continue to maintain cultural connections to all of these heritage places and landscapes, although they may have lost physical access to many of them.
