Described by the early colonists as Paradise, the land where Perth City now sits has been home to the Noongar since the Dreamtime (Nyitting). Join us to share in local cultural sites within the Perth City, discover Noongar culture along the banks of the Derbal Yerigan (Swan River) and hear stories of resistance and courage on this short walking tour.
