Cultural Recognition

This is Whadjuk Noongar country.

Noongar people are the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the south-west of Western Australia. Noongar boodjar (country) is diverse and made up of 14 groups who speak the same or similar language.

Whadjuk is the name of the group from the Perth area in which the Woodman Point Regional Park is situated.

What we now call the Cockburn district has been an important place for Noongar people for millennia and continues to be so today. Artefacts and rock engravings found in the district reflect the use of the land by Whadjuk people. Consultation with local Noongar Elders has revealed strong cultural connections with the Cockburn coast.
