On this page you will find useful resources for teaching the Representations of Ancient Australians, the historical and geographical context for a study of Ancient Australia, and the range and significance of sources for Ancient Australia looking at Lake Mungo as a case study.

For each topic we have collated reliable online resources, book chapters and articles and we have created teaching materials you can use in your classroom, including powerpoint presentations, lesson plans, class activities and teachers notes.

The content for Ancient Australia has been prepared by Nicole Marshall as part of a cadetship through Walanga Muru, Macquarie University.


These resources have been developed for the Museum of Ancient Cultures with the generous support of Walanga Muru.
