Wanju Wanju (welcome!)

Be immersed in the world’s oldest living culture with an authentic, personal experience of Indigenous culture in Kings Park.

The land we know today as Kings Park has been a place of great significance to its traditional custodians, the Whadjuk Noongar 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 Noongar people who have a strong family connection to this country and a deep understanding of their culture and knowledge of the land.

Tour times, bookings and further details are available by contacting the groups below.
