Map of Aboriginal Australia

The Map of Aboriginal Australia was developed by Dr David Horton and the Australian Institute of Aboriginaland Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) in 1994.

I believe that AIATSIS and Dr Horton own the copyright for the map. We recommend that each classroom should have a copy always available for their students.

You can purchase the Map of Aboriginal Australia (affiliate link) here.

However, if you want to use the map in your presentations and in particular, student presentations, you can download –

  • a jpeg (right click & save image as)

(Please note: these sites are external to Blacklines and AIATSIS and may not have copyright permission to make the map available).
