Traditional games

Playing traditional games is an opportunity to develop new skills and experience Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. It is also a great way to spend time with family and friends and maintain community values and traditional practices. Ask Elders, aunties, uncles, friends, teachers, mum or dad if they remember or know any traditional games. †
