This research focus privileges both physical encounters and secular activities as frontier dynamics. In this chapter, we concur with recent developments in Australian contact historiography that a broadened perspective on frontier dynamics is required that includes activities that took place on the “farside” of the frontier. The issue we explore is Aboriginal ceremonies and rituals, especially those associated with the marking of place such as with rock-art, which aimed to affect the nature of frontier encounters and control of lands.
