Resources: Free eBook - Yulunga: Traditional Australian Indigenous Games

Dick Moss, Editor, Physical Education

This free eBook is provided at no cost from the ?"Participating in Sport" department of the Australian Sports Commission. It provides a selection of games and activities from the aboriginal societies of Australia and area.

These games were recorded by explorers, settlers, missionaries and government officials and have been passed down for generations by indigenous Australians themselves. Some of the games have been modified for better safety and to make use of modern equipment.

Many of these games will be great in your physical education classes as lead-up games or fun, fitness activities.
