Yalinguth (“yesterday” in Woi Wurrung) is a mobile app/ audio augmented reality experience that connects people to place and history through geo-located soundscapes and stories told by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. In keeping with oral traditions, and to minimise screens, Yalinguth is expressed entirely through sound. The overall premise of Yalinguth is guided by the words of the Elders that “we need to go back, to go forwards”.

Yalinguth aims to connect students, tourists, and the local community with important firsthand historical accounts, increasing people’s knowledge of the Aboriginal history of Victoria. The purpose is to increase empathy, respect, community connection, and to celebrate the Elders who paved the way for Aboriginal Rights in Victoria and Australia. With this, Yalinguth aims to contribute to the processes of truth telling, healing and reconciliation.

Yalinguth contains an audio walk, based on and around Gertrude St, in Fitzroy, Victoria, Australia. Yalinguth is best experienced with headphones, on-location in Fitzroy. Open the app, walk, and experience Yalinguth.

So important

This app is a blessing to be able to have. To learn from the elders on here about the history of Fitzroy and places where there has been community and community resistance for a very long time. This is invaluable history that everyone should know when they walk around and reside on these streets.

ESSENTIAL experience Melbourne!!!

A unique and important experience… Perfect activity if you’re strolling through Fitzroy on a sunny day. The stories, the songs, the history, the technology—WOW! So easy and engaging. Thoughtful & immersive learning tools like this give me hope :)
