While the Rocks district in the shadow of the Harbour Bridge is a handy place to start retracing the steps of early settlers and convicts who were transported to what was a giant penal colony, discovering Sydney’s Aboriginal past takes a bit more detective work. The Barani/Barrabugu booklet is essential reading for such exploration

“You’d be in Sydney and you’d be walking past and you’d have no idea necessarily that this was a site that was connected with Aboriginal history and had some stories to tell you,” explained Dr Murray. “Some of our key streets are probably developed from the tracks that Aboriginal people once used. You have to look a little closer and you can actually see Sydney’s history in all its layers.”
