The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority recognises and honours the long history and deep spiritual connection of the Whadjuk Noongar people to Kaarta Koomba (Kings Park).

National Reconciliation Week (27 May – 3 June) 2020. Photo: M. Griffin.National Reconciliation Week (27 May – 3 June) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements; and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

For thousands of years Aboriginal people have visited Mooro Katta or Kaarta Gar-up, two of the many names for Mount Eliza, the highest point of Kings Park. In celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the reconciliation walks of 2000, when people came together to walk on bridges and roads across the nation and show their support for a more reconciled Australia, we invite you to stroll the Boodja Gnarning walk through the Western Australian Botanic Garden. This walk showcases some of the flora used by Aboriginal people of the South West region and shares their stories and knowledge of the land, plants and seasons through artworks and interpretive signage.

Be part of National Reconciliation Week by offering a virtual Acknowledgement of Country, bringing this year’s theme ‘In This Together’ to life. Head to the National Reconciliation Week website for more details on how to participate; and be sure to use the hashtags #InThisTogether2020, #NRW2020 and #kingsparkandbotanicgarden.

We are in this together.
