This year we continue dual naming to reflect the first nation language of the Whadjuk Nyoongar peoples of Boorloo (Perth). Perth’s cultural identity is living, breathing and evolving.

It’s in the City’s adopted local heritage strategy to increase visibility of the multiple cultural heritage stories in the capital and its diverse neighborhoods. These neighborhoods fringe the shores of the Derbal Yerrigan – Swan River, from the west in Crawley to Claisebrook in the east. They straddle the high ground of West Perth adjacent to Kaarta Koomba Kings Park and the vibrant low lands of Northbridge.

We hope this cultural experience will create better understanding of our shared history and community we live in. Boorloo Kwedjang Bardip Yanginy – Perth Old Story Sharing.
