Place Names Walyalup
Working with Nyoongar Elders and community members, Elders Len Collard and Geri Hayden led decoding workshops that used local knowledge, language, memories and stories to capture the landscape.
Visit the five decoded locations in Walyalup; Dwertawirrinup Cantonment Hill, Manjaree Bathers Beach, Beeliar the Waterways, Wattern the Ocean and Waugal Mia Rocky Bay.
Explore the stories of each place on the interactive digital map and reflect on the changes over time.
