These paintings were a true representation of how Australia looked under Aboriginal stewardship. In a remarkable work of research Gammage has been able to demonstrate that pre-colonisation, Australia’s Aborigines managed the land in a far more scientific and systematic way than has previously been realised. His findings force us to see Australia through completely new eyes. He talks to historian Lyndall Ryan about the implications for our future.\n\nhttp://archive.swf.org.au/index.php?option=com_2012&task=view_detail&agid=3077&Itemid=124\n\nParticipants: Bill Gammage, Lyndall Ryan (facilitator)\nCost: Free, no bookings\nDisabled Access: Yes\nHearing Loop : No DTSTAMP:20120517T000000Z DTSTART:20120517T000000Z DTEND:20120517T010000Z END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
