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 Australians.  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 place 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.  Finally, there is an English-Aboriginal word list giving the Aboriginal translation for many hundreds of common words.

Aboriginal – Place Names is full of fascinating information and is also a valuable reference for anyone interested in Australian history.
