The Taribelang people have lived on this country for thousands of generations. When English surveyor John Thompson and his assistant AD Edwards came to the area in 1868, they were fascinated by Taribelang language and incorporated many of the sounds they heard into the CBD street names. Byron Broome, a Taribelang man, takes us on a tour to point out what those words are and what they mean. Ever wondered about the origin of Bourbong, Barolin or Woongarra? In this International Year of Indigenous Languages, now's the time to find out.

What to Bring: Your ticket, comfortable walking shoes, hats, water and sunscreen.
