Event description

Description

Be welcomed to your guided Nyungar Tours cultural walking tour by a Traditional Owner with a strong family history of ancient customs and traditions in Perth and Kings Park.

We commence our walk from the Kings Park Botanic Terraces (near the Forest Roundabout *Best parking is in the nearby Forest Carpark or Eucalyptus Carpark off Lovekin Drive) as we learn about Perth’s Aboriginal heritage and sites of cultural significance from stories passed down through generations.

Taking in the magnificent gardens of Kings Park and spectacular views overlooking Perth City and the Swan River we share traditional stories of Whadjuk Country and the history of the Nyungar people in Perth

With a Welcome to Nyungar Country we explore the Banksia Garden from an Aboriginal perspective and see the scarred Tuart Trees from Kings Park’s Aboriginal past and walk the Tuart Lawns.

We visit Pioneer Women’s Memorial place and learn about the significance of Yorgars (women) there as we walk down the path of serene water ponds and the Water Gardens.

Enjoying some traditional stories we also learn about medicinal and bush foods farmed by the Nyungar people in the area.

As we loop back towards our starting pont we walk among the treetops and enjoy spectacular views of the Perth City skyline and Swan River over a glass arched bridge (Lotterywest Federation Walkway) suspended among a canopy of tall eucalypts.

Get hands on with traditional Aboriginal living demonstrations such as the as the use of grinding stones, ochre paints, bush foods, paperbark and other seasonal Nyungar activities.

Soak in the fresh air, flora and fauna as our Aboriginal culture is explained and we look to the future of sharing Aboriginal cultural awareness with all Australians and visitors to our Country.

We welcome you to walk with us...
