Indigenous Australia

If Australia is the lucky country, why do Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have a lower life expectancy than other Australians – and many people in the developing world?

Every Australian deserves equal access to income, employment, health and education.

We’re committed to working with Indigenous Australians to improve their living conditions – as well as their social, emotional and cultural wellbeing.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that the following pages may contain images or names of people who have since passed away.
