Galup VR Experience

Uncover untold stories of Lake Monger in this new 360 VR film.

An hour before sunset, Noongar performer Ian Wilkes takes you on a tour of Lake Monger, an ancient wetland in the heart of suburban Perth. As the rush-hour traffic passes by, the centuries slip away and you are guided towards an immersive understanding of Noongar culture and the impact of settler colonialism.

Today, thousands of people visit Lake Monger and its iconic black swans without knowing the events that happened there or understanding the significance of this important site. Galup VR Experience seeks to change all that by immersing audiences in a retelling of one of its most important and largely untold stories.

It’s an invitation to all Australians to learn more about our collective past and shed some light on the tragic events that occurred in and around Lake Monger. This new virtual reality film promises to be a profound experience which explores the transformative impact of truth-telling and brings people together for connection and healing.

Created by Ian Wilkes and artist/filmmaker Poppy van Oorde-Grainger with an oral history from Elder Doolann-Leisha Eatts, and guided by a team of supportive Noongar Elders, this intimate truth-telling experience will resonate with you long after you leave.

‘I have lived my whole life dreaming that this story would be told. It was my greatest desire, right from when I was 10 years old.’
- Doolann-Leisha Eatts.
