This is the accompanying teacher resource for SBS interactive documentary, K'gari. The documentary debunks one of Australia’s first fake news stories about the origins of Fraser Island, by exposing the largely untold Aboriginal version of events. The resource includes: 

  • The 10 minute interactive documentary - you will need internet connection and audio on; 
  • Discussion questions; 
  • Classroom activities; 
  • Extension activities. 

Caution: SBS Learn would like to advise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples that this resource may contain images, audio visual materials and/or the names of people who have died.
