Map700x250This map shows the major areas in the ‘Top End’ of Australia where the didgeridoo is traditionally found. The coloured zones represent areas that are culturally distinct as far as the production and use of the didgeridoo is concerned. Didgeridoos in each zone share basic similarities although micro-variation and larger-scale cultural distinctions are also apparent. Clicking on the coloured zones will bring up specimen instruments belonging to that area, or click here for instruments collected in other parts of Australia. Please note that zone delineations are approximations only.
