Loanable resources and Indigenous Kit

The Australian Embassy is keen to assist in any way that we can to promote the teachings of Australian history and culture. For that purpose, we have assembled some collections (flags, posters, books, etc.) which may be of use to you if you are a school, an organisation or individuals, who are studying or working with an Australian theme.

Some of our items you can borrow, but some of the items that we have you can have to keep. If you are a school, and you have a recurring theme about Australia, please contact us if you would like us to assist you in gathering a more permanent inventory to teach about Australia.

We are very proud of our Indigenous Kit, which will be familiar to many of the schools which have borrowed it over the years. It contains real boomerangs, indigenous musical instruments, informations booklets and other fabulous items, which gives your class a better feel and understanding of Australian aboriginal culture.
However, because of the high demand, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible if you would like to borrow it. For that same reason, you can only borrow it for 2 weeks at a time.

Here is a little look at what we currently have in our Embassy, which you can borrow:

 - DVDs on Australian movies, culture, education, nature and study options
 - CDs with Aboriginal and Australian folk songs
 - Books: children books (in English) with Aboriginal themes, books on Australian nature, culture, architecture, language and history.
 - Flags (fabric and paper), posters, pull-ups (for larger displays) and small stuffed animals

For a full listing, please have a look at our current exhibitions and resource kits.

For Teachers
If you are interested in teaching Aboriginal Studies - or have more background knowledge about Australian Aboriginal culture, you can download the "Teachers Notes" from the Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Studies press. This is in collaboration with different schools in Australia, who teach Aboriginal culture.
