Bayala Language Classes
Learn how to say a few words in Sydney's indigenous language in this 1-hour workshop.
If you're keen to learn how to say a few words in Sydney's indigenous language, don't miss Bayala. Named after the word for "speak" in local language, this annual series includes a free one-hour introductory language class taught by Darug woman Aunty Jacinta Tobin and Gadigal man Joel Davison. In under 60 minutes, you'll learn basic greetings, place names, and songs. Not a bad way to spend an hour. History and language buffs can also check out the Out of the Vaults show at the State Library of NSW, where a rarely-exhibited collection of items relating to the history of Sydney language will be available for public viewing.
