Description

This unique digital excursion, presented by an Aboriginal narrator, will take students on a journey of discovery around the area now known as Bennelong Point. Students will hear an oral history from the Aboriginal perspective - from creation time and the ancestral spirits who formed the landscape, to pre-settlement and the story of Bennelong, to today's iconic Sydney Opera House.

Students will learn of the fishing rites and the oyster beds, the totems that were connected to the Gadigal people, and the daily life of the clans that inhabited Sydney Cove. They will also hear of the changes that came with the arrival of Governor Phillip and the resilience of convicts who worked in the area.
