First Languages Australia has been working with regional language centres nationally to develop an interactive map of Australian languages that reflects the names and groupings favoured by community.

Language workers from around the country are reviewing the data in their regions and contributing profiles that explain why their languages are so important to them.

Gambay includes teachers notes and curriculum links P-12 so is also a great resource for parents, teachers and students.
