Be immersed in the world’s oldest living culture with an authentic, personal experience of Aboriginal culture in Kings Park.
The land we know today as Kings Park has been a place of great significance to its traditional custodians, the Wadjuk Nyoongar people, for at least 40,000 years. The Park’s traditional names include 'Kaarta Koomba', 'Kaarta Gar-up' or 'Mooro Kaarta'.
Tours and other cultural experiences are run by local Nyoongar people who have a strong family connection to this country and a deep understanding of their culture and knowledge of the land.
