Russell Square – Perth’s Park of Sighs

Join us for the third talk in the Heritage Skills Association Winter Warmer Talk Series.

This series showcases local heritage professionals, shines a spotlight on Western Australian heritage, and provides a meeting opportunity for all those interested in heritage work.

Russell Square is one of Perth’s oldest parks with a history that predates colonial settlement and is cherished as Northbridge’s only green space.
This talk explores the cultural significance of Russell Square for Noongar stakeholders and the broader community, and reveals the discoveries made in an Aboriginal Heritage Survey and Cultural Heritage Assessment undertaken by Urbis.
