A Noongar story about connection to country and family

Follow the story of Chunyart, a young Noongar boy and his friend, the cheeky Twenty-eight Parrot, on his journey through Whadjuk Country. Learn how plants and animals provided food, tools, shelter and medicine for Noongar people and how they took care of the land (boodja).

Students engage in hands-on activities, including traditional first aid, hunting games and the use of symbols to share a story of family and place.
