Discover The Aborigines Australia

In Australia, it is above all the culture of the "native people", the Aborigines, which arouses most interest in travellers. After having been persecuted for a long time, the Aborigine people, although not returning to their rightful place, are gradually managing to assert their identity in Australian society. As well as traditional items, such as the boomerang and didjeridoo (a wind instrument made out of a eucalyptus branch), Aborigine artists also produce traditional works (paintings on bark and sculptures representing "dreams") as well as plays, ballets or contemporary music.
