Songlines are ancient energy lines connecting places, people and animals, criss-crossing the Australian continent.
Songlines are far more than just navigational pathways - they contain vast amounts of information about the creation of Earth, the formation of the landscape, the coming of people onto the Earth, the movement of animals, birds and marine life, seasonal changes and weather patterns; the list goes on and on.
Songlines also hold moral and practical instruction for everyday living, and a deep spirituality connecting all things.
The songs lived on the tongues of initiated people who became their custodian.
When the path of a songline is interfered with, the knowledge that was alive in the land and waters can become fragmented or lost.
From time immemorial, the Indigenous peoples of Australia have walked the songlines, learning and passing on knowledge and culture, and caring for country.
