Aboriginal culture

Aboriginal history extends over at least 50,000 years. Knowledge, art and rituals have been passed down through generations to create a rich tapestry of cultural heritage – diverse, complex and spiritual. The relationship to the land or country is central to Indigenous culture and to the issues that are important to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people today.

Nuclear history

- 3 October 1952: first nuclear bomb test in the Monte Bello Islands group, Western Australia.
- 27 September 1956: first nuclear bomb test at Maralinga, South Australia.
Britain's nuclear tests during the 1950s have left a tragic legacy, now a well-documented chapter in the history of Australia, as graphically illustrated in our books and DVDs.
