This map, which covers Sydney’s inner city area, identifies the location of places that have historical associations for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Sydney. Each place is connected to a historical theme that expresses an aspect of cultural life in Sydney – these themes are colour coded throughout the website and on this map. Together these themes provide a layered narrative of the lived experience of Sydney’s Aboriginal people.

While all these places have historical significance, many have changed or disappeared. Others are private buildings or educational facilities that are not suitable to visit.
