Barani is an Aboriginal word of the Sydney language that means ‘yesterday’.

The Barani website provides histories of people, places and events in the City of Sydney local government area that are associated with the histories of Sydney’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Aboriginal people have an unbroken and ongoing connection with the City of Sydney. The Barani website reveals some of these associations, their histories and their cultures.
