Welcome to Country - A Travel Guide to Indigenous Australia


This book is for everyone travelling around Australia who wants to gain an insight into the culture that has thrived here for over 50,000 years and explore a different side of Australia. 

Welcome to Country is a completely new and inclusive guidebook to Indigenous Australia and the Torres Strait Islands.

Author Professor Marcia Langton answers questions such as why the Welcome to Country is so important and what does 'country' mean to Indigenous people.

Organised into state sections, it's a directory of Indigenous tourism experiences - covering galleries and festivals, tours and performances, and communities that are open to visitors.  It also covers Indigenous languages and customs, history, religion and ceremonies, art and dance, cultural awareness and etiquette for visitors. It introduces a new Australia, a country that remains dynamic, and is filled with openness and diversity.
