The Darug people are a group of Indigenous people of Aboriginal Australians that were united by a common language, strong ties of kinship and survived as skilled hunter–fisher–gatherers in family groups or clans scattered throughout much of what is modern-day Sydney.

The Darug were bounded by the Kuringgai to the northeast around Broken Bay, the Darkinjung to the north, the Wiradjuri to the west on the western fringe of the Blue Mountains, the Gandangara to the southwest in the Southern Highlands and the Tharawal to the southeast in the Illawarra area.

Based in Western Sydney the Darug Tribal Aboriginal Corporation’s central focus is Darug People, Culture and Country, inclusive of large parts of the Blue Mountains. The organisation has the following objectives:

  • Trace the family history of the Darug and preserve it for future generations of Australians;

  • Establish a register of Darug people;

  • Hold an annual reunion for all Darug people, their family and friends;

  • Support the establishment of a cultural centre of Darug culture, for the benefit of the community, by collecting objects and information relating to Darug history and culture;

  • Promote Darug culture in the wider community;

  • Provide the Aboriginal community with resources and information on the Darug people;

  • Work with and support other Aboriginal organisations in the Darug area;

  • Obtain claims for Darug traditional lands under Native Title claims for Darug people; and

  • Help create security for Aboriginal people through economic development.
