This FACT indicates the number of Australians who have an affiliation to an Australian Aboriginal Traditional Religion in each capital city per 100,000 persons. 

Indigenous Australians have a rich culture with ancient traditions and beliefs which are traditionally based on animist spiritual frameworks. Indigenous Australia's oral tradition and spiritual values are based upon reverence for the land and a belief in the Dreamtime, an early period from which come stories of creation and the naming of the natural landscape by the very first Aboriginal ancestors. 

Today, there are very few Indigenous Australians who maintain a belief in a traditional Aboriginal Religion. 2016 Census data shows that the city with the highest number is Darwin at 66 per 100,000 persons, which is unsuprisng due to its also having the highest proportion of Australian Aborigines. The city with the lowest proportion of affiliation is Melbourne, at 5 in 100,000 persons.
