Australia is full of diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations. From Bunuba to Wiradjuri, palawa to Kala Lagaw Ya, every mob has its own language and unique culture. Each episode of Little Yarns will take you on a journey to a different nation to learn a first word on Country.

We’ll travel south across the Tasman Sea to lutruwita (Tasmania) and learn about the mums of palawa country. Look out for crocs in Wadjigany, while we find out about the seasons in Batjamalh language. And keep your eyes peeled for an eight-legged creepy crawly, as we hear how Yawuru language has changed over time. There are hundreds of first languages to listen to and learn from!

Little Yarns is a co-listening podcast series for pre-schoolers. Ideal for families listening together at home or as a listening resource in early learning centres, Little Yarns explores the diverse languages, stories and countries of Indigenous Australia.

    Noisy Yarns

    Rudi is meeting up with Ann Jones from Noisy By Nature for a bushwalk on Dharawal Country. Together they’re listening to Country and trying their best to copy the sounds of the loud locals – a whipbird, clicking froglets, a plover and something green that makes a surprising sound. Join in for a Noisy Yarn!

Delightful & Educational

This is the kind of show every kid should be listening to. It takes you on a tour of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations, teaching you a few words inthe various languages and hearing them tell their stories.

It's a great resource for young kids to check out with their families.

It’s so much fun

If you like Bluey and it’s got to be done you will love this podcast. A podcast that makes me think of Arthur’s a word from kids and Bluey mixed in one and it’s so much fun. Hooray. I will listen to this a lot.
