Experience Perth & Learn About the Culture

The Point Walter/Blackwall Reach area is situated at the top end of a tidal gorge that stretches down to the ocean. This unique area comprises of a mixture of sandy embayments and eroded limestone habitat. The Point Walter sand spit is an important site for waterbirds using the Swan River, particularly for feeding and resting. Rich in culture and history, the Point Walter area is known as Dyoondalup, meaning “place of white sand” in Noongar, and the Blackwall Reach area is known as Jennalup. To the Whadjuk Noongar people, this area is traditionally a place for women and children. You can listen to a selection of their stories about the area on the DPAW  website these include: The Hair Hear about the significance of Djoondalup (Point Walter), where Marie Taylor Whadjuk Elder talks about the white hair of Junda the Charnock Woman. Fish Traps Looking down river from Point Walter you may notice the remains of an old fish trap used by the Whadjuk people to catch a feed. Listen to Whadjuk Elder Noel Morich explain how Noongars would catch fish using the traps.  Welcome to Country Welcome to Jennalup, otherwise known as Blackwall Reach. Jennalup is located within Whadjuk territory. Whadjuk is the name of the dialectal group of Noongar people from the Perth region, which forms part of the greater Noongar language group of south-west Western Australia. To the Whadjuk people, Jennalup is traditionally a place for women and children. The Footprint and the Guna Hear about the significance of the Blackwall Reach limestone cliffs, where Marie Taylor Whadjuk Elder talks about the footprint of Djunda the Charnock Woman, a spirit woman who collected spirit children, keeping them in her strands of long white hair. As well as how the Waagle, a powerful serpent-like creature formed these limestone rocks. The Birth Place Looking out to the river you will see the beautiful white sands rushing to meet the limestone cliffs. These white sands are incredibly significant to Whadjuk women, for this area was once a birthing place. Listen to Whadjuk Elder Marie Taylor talk more about this special place. The Wattle Tree The wattle tree is special to Whadjuk people. Listen to Whadjuk Elder Marie Taylor tell the delicious secret of the wattle. Hint, if you look carefully you may find some unexpected treats that trickle from the trees. The Boomer Bush Walk along Jennalup and take in a deep breath. Smell anything pungent? Hear Whadjuk Elder Noel Morich explain what you may be smelling. The Deepest Part of the River Jennalup, the place of feet, is very significant to Whadjuk people.
