More information:

This experience is packed with opportunities to connect and immerse yourself in Noongar culture. You will get to learn about the land, ocean and waterways, plants and animals of Whitfords Nodes from your knowledgeable Noongar guide, Olman Walley.

Included is a walking tour, which will be a gentle stroll around a section of Whitfords Nodes Park with plenty of stops along the way to share history, music, stories and information about Noongar culture and language, local flora and fauna, tools and artefacts. 

The tour then follows an up-hill path requiring a moderate level of fitness, along with a stroll along the beach.

This experience forms part of the WA Tree Festival and will allow you to learn about some of our incredible local trees and their Noongar names, cultural significance and/or uses. There will also be the opportunity to look out for local and unique fauna species throughout the walk, such as the Ngoolarks (Carnaby's Black-Cockatoo) that rely on the Tuart trees in this area, Quenda and  Booyi (Southwestern Snake-necked turtles).

This event is provided to you by the City of Joondalup, Friends of Hillarys and Kallaroo Foreshore and Perth NRM who will all be in attendance to learn and share kaartdijin (knowledge) on how we can work together to protect Boodjah and our beautiful coast and natural areas.
