The Welcome to Country Book is an award winning hard cover book that helps us recognise and learn about the important Aboriginal cultural tradition of visiting a community.


Aboriginal communities across Australia have boundaries.  To cross the boundaries or enter community country you needed permission from the neighbouring community.  Each community has its own way of welcoming to country.

This beautiful book was created by  a most respected Elder, Aunty Joy Murphy,  and given illustrated by Indigenous artist Lisa Kennedy.

It introduces the Welcome to Country for the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri People (Melbourne and surrounds). 

The Welcome to Country book is a valuable resource for introducing and celebrating Aboriginal culture.
