Yorkas Nyinning Building
- Western Australian Botanic Garden, Kings Park WA 6005, Australia
The Yorkas Nyinning building is located within the Western Australian Botanic Garden, near the corner of Lovekin Drive and Forrest Drive in Kings Park. Built in the early 1970's, and designed by Alex Doepel, the pavilion building is most often used for the delivery of environmental education programs for school children.
In 1979, the Sesquicentenary Women's Committee had a commemorative limestone wall built behind an apron stage on the site. The wall, with a bas-relief by sculptor Athanasios Kalamaras, commemorates the contribution of women to the development of Western Australia from infancy to maturity. First known as Minmarra Gun Gun, the name was changed to Yorkas Nyinning following a request by the local Nyoongar community. It translates to 'place where the spirits of women rest'.
