Loanable resources and Indigenous Kit

We have assembled some resources (flags, posters, books,  boomerangs, indigenous musical instruments, information booklets) which you can apply to use if you are a school, an organisation or individuals, who are studying or working with an Australian theme.

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 collection to teach about Australia.

There is a high demand for resource kits so we ask that you inform us early if you would like to borrow one.  You can borrow a resource kit for  two weeks at a time.

Here are some examples of what we currently have in our Embassy collection, which you can borrow:

  •  DVDs
  •  CDs with Aboriginal and Australian folk songs
  •  Children's 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)
  • Small stuffed animals.
