"When Kevin Rudd was prime minister of Australia, Ngarluma man Tyson Mowarin was struck that the Mandarin-speaking leader could say hello at the foot of the Great Wall of China, but could not say hello in the local indigenous language at the foot of Uluru.
Using Welcome to Country, his free iOS app that uses geo-location to deliver users cultural information about Aboriginal groups indigenous to the area, Mowarin told Mashable Australia he hopes to ensure all Australians know as much about the country's native people as they do about countries across the ocean."
