Marcia Langton: Welcome to Country 2nd edition

Marcia Langton

In this extensively updated edition, Marcia Langton offers a full range of Indigenous-owned or -operated tourism experiences across Australia, including an expanded directory with 250 new listings, illustrated maps, and photography by Wayne Quilliam.

Australia is home to the longest continuing culture on Earth, and Welcome to Country 2nd edition highlights myriad ways to engage and deepen our knowledge and appreciation of the First peoples through travel. Everything from arts centres to tours is covered in this guide, and there are also fascinating insights into Indigenous cultures and histories, as well as etiquette for visitors.

This guide also addresses the events and issues facing Australia today, such as as Native Title, the Stolen Generations, the 2020 bushfires, the Black Lives Matter movement, and making a rightful place in the nation for the First Australians.

Welcome to Country was the first book of its kind and this updated edition, brought together by a highly respected First Nations scholar and author, is a must-have for every Australian home.


I sense a growing desire for non-Indigenous Australians to know about our Indigenous culture. The recent successes of Growing Up Aboriginal in Australia (one of our bestsellers last month) and Alexis Wright’s Stella Prize-winning biography, Tracker, attest to that.

Academic Marcia Langton has produced the perfect book for people who want to know more about our rich Indigenous history. Ostensibly a travel guide, it’s also an introduction to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culture, and places of interest. Whether you just want to find out more about where you live or you want to plan a trip, this is a wonderful guide to culture and places. Beautifully produced and illustrated, it’s equally at home on the shelf or in the glove box.
