Abstract

Using a recent editorial comment in this journal as a focus, this paper reviews the extent to which geography has been implicated in the 'colonial project' in Australia. It argues that recent work amongst geographers involved with indigenous Australians reflects a commitment to transcend this colonial past. The paper calls for geographers to work toward a wide-reaching decolonisation of the discipline, and to develop a better understanding of the contemporary legacies of geography's colonial past.
