Aboriginal Place Names

Beginners Guide
135 pages Paperback,

Where does the name Cooloongatta come from? What does Uluru mean? So many of our place names are derived from Aboriginal words, but their origins and meaning are unknown to most Australian's. This new edition of 'Aboriginal Place Names' gives thousands of Aboriginal meanings from all over Australia, plus many new entries for places that have recently been given Aboriginal names.

The book also includes a list of places that originally had Aboriginal names but which were changed to European ones - such as Mount Eliza for Gargatup. Thousands of place names are listed, each followed by the state in which it is found in and its meaning. There is also a dictionary that gives the Aboriginal translations for common English words.
