Summary

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders looked to the stars long before the age of telescopes and satellites.

Thousands of years before the ancient Greek astronomers were studying the cosmos, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities looked to the night sky to navigate their day-to-day survival on land and sea. Indigenous knowledge systems within these cultures determined how planets moved, where to find food, predict tidal movements, and construct calendars.

Join us for an extraordinary insight into the significance of indigenous astronomical knowledge throughout history and today.
