Melbourne Dreaming

Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander Studies

Discovering the sacred Aboriginal sites in Melbourne with the help of an app

Melbourne Dreaming is a book published by ASP (Aboriginal Studies Press), the publishing arm of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander Studies (AIATSIS). The book offers easy and informed access to many of Melbourne’s Aboriginal cultural sites: places of historical significance to both Aboriginal and European people, archaeological sites where physical remains of Aboriginal activity before settlement still exist, and modern Aboriginal plant trails and cultural places.

Carbon Creative designed and developed the app, released for Android and iOS mobile devices, to complement the Melbourne Dreaming book, encouraging users to explore Indigenous sites and immerse themselves in the culturally rich experiences.

Our creative approach focused on delivering an app that celebrated Aboriginal culture with a  modern and contemporary design while ensuring an accessible, informative and user-friendly experience.
