Hidden In Plain View


Hidden in Plain View provides a nuanced exploration of Sydney's indigenous population in early colonial Sydney. Contrary to common belief, Aboriginal communities did not vanish in the aftermath of colonial settlement. While often overlooked in historical accounts, Paul Irish's research shows they endured powerfully.

This insightful book sheds light on the experiences of Aboriginal individuals and communities, highlighting their resilience and ongoing connection to the coastal environment despite the challenges posed by colonization. By examining individual stories, Paul Irish unveils a previously obscured chapter of Sydney's history, offering readers a deeper understanding of the complexities of indigenous existence during this time.

Hidden in Plain View offers a fresh perspective on Sydney's shared history and challenges readers to reconsider their understanding of the city's past. Paul Irish's meticulous research breathes new life into individuals who have been marginalized or erased from historical narratives.
