NSW: An Indigenous Heritage Tour of the University of Sydney


Event Details


Guide Jimmy Smith will weave the history of Aboriginal Sydney with the growth and development of the University of Sydney. Beginning in Victoria Park and ending at the Charles Perkins Centre, this tour winds through the campus and includes a visit to the Macleay Museum. This tour explores how the lands the university is built upon were used by local communities before European settlement, the history of western intellectual engagement with Indigenous people; and the ways several disciplines of the university utilised traditional knowledge in research and teaching. The tour follows the pathways the University has taken towards reconciliation with the first Australians in recent decades.

Date: 12-1.30pm Monday 16 May

Venue: The University of Sydney
