Rivers And Resilience


Rivers and Resilience traces the history of Aboriginal people along Sydney's Georges River from the early periods of white settlement to the present. Telling the stories of the river people, it offers insights into Aboriginal history in an urban setting.

For centuries Aboriginal people lived along the Georges River. With colonisation, the river's geography forced settlers to travel further along its path in search of arable land.

Aboriginal people retained a hold over soem of the land and maintained communities despite changes caused by the city's growth. 

Leading historians Heather Goodall and Allison Cadzow investigate Aboriginal communities in this densely settled suburban area
