Reconciliation Resources

Welcome to our guide on reconciliation resources, designed to assist you in deepening your understanding of First Nations and the ongoing journey towards reconciliation in Australia. Our aim is to provide you with a curated selection of resources that will not only enlighten you but also help you engage with the rich history and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Whether you're an educator, researcher, or simply an interested individual, you'll find something here to support your learning journey.

We encourage you to share any valuable resources you come across. Please don't hesitate to contact the City's Aboriginal Community Development Officer on (08) 9411 3444 or email with your suggestions. Together, we can continue to build a more inclusive, knowledgeable, and connected community.
