Within its busy urban presence, Melbourne has a rich and complex Aboriginal heritage. Amongst the city landscape lie layers of a turbulent history and an ongoing vibrant culture. But you need to know where to look.

Melbourne Dreaming allows you to take guided tours, or to plan your own self-guided walk, from 30 minutes to a whole day.

The first edition of Melbourne Dreaming established itself as an informative and culturally appropriate guidebook. This new edition has been updated with new sites and illustrations. While it's an authoritative guidebook with clear maps, travelling instructions and stories and images of significant people and events, it's also an alternative social history, told through precincts of significance to the city's Aboriginal people.

The precincts include both physical and cultural sites. With their accompanying stories and photographs, they evoke an ancient past and a continuing present.

This book was purchased to gift a family member. When the parcel arrived and I went to wrap it, my neighbour and I had a look at the book and were both so impressed we thought we would also like a copy. The recipient was most pleased to receive this book.
