The Aboriginal Australia Map was developed along with the Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia as part of a research project.
Using the published resources available between 1988 and 1994, the map attempts to represent language, tribal or nation groups of Australia's Indigenous peoples.
The information on which the map is based is contested and may not be agreed to by some landowners. The borders between groups are purposefully represented as slightly blurred, as they do not claim to be exact.
The map was produced before native title legislation and is not suitable for use in native title or other land claims.
The map is small and flat (not folded) and measures 594mm x 841mm.
