Space is regarded not simply as a backdrop against which social processes are played out, but also as a means for the realisation of interest and power relations, and an outlet of a community’s identity, which in turn shapes that identity. In the case of Aboriginal Australians, who live in the land that is originally of their ownership but later largely occupied by European people, the utilisation of space for indicating their presence, therefore promoting their interest, and space influence upon them, can be seen in Australian urban areas. The Aboriginal might increase their visibility variously in residential areas, at their own buildings, or via drawings along roads in their settlements. These efforts notwithstanding, the marking of space by the white people is seemingly dominant, and the Aboriginal are prone to think that they are excluded in some measure from urban social activities.
