The Australian

It has embraced cultural diversity and opportunity. No less important, it is devoting substantial resources to developing new plays and to presenting them with the scale and stagecraft of major productions.

Some years, I’ve written an indigenous Australian focused Monday Musings post to start and conclude NAIDOC Week and Lisa’s ANZLitLovers Indigenous Literature Week. I have been researching a topic for this year’s second post, but it’s taking longer than I expected, so have decided to hold it over to next year. Meanwhile, having committed to a […]

The building is both beautiful and […]

Although the local Yankunytjatjara and Pitjantjatjara Aborigines have been using and considered Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock) a sacred site for thousands of years, the first European, William Grosse, didn’t sight the rock until 1872.
