Glossary Term Aboriginal Reserves and Stations
Aboriginal reserves were portions of land that were set aside by the New South Wales Department of Lands, from the 1860s until World War I, for the use of Aboriginal people.
An Aboriginal station was a large reserve that was managed by a resident teacher-manager and his wife. They were usually contained a school and a clinic, and served as a depot for the allocation of blankets, rations and other supplies to Aboriginal people.
