Welcome to Country from the Wardandi People

The Southwest corner from Capel in the northwest, Busselton, Yallingup, Margaret River and Augusta in the south is the region of the Sea God Wardan and the Wardandi People are the traditional custodians of this land.
The Wardandi People have set up the Wardan Aboriginal Centre as a cultural hub, a place of learning and education.
The Wardandi Peoples existence can be experienced through a number of tours and by visiting the various exhibitions including artworks from the Wardandi people and Southwest Noongah group.
There are a number of social, environmental and historical issues that affect Indigenous Australians; the Wardandi people have put together a range of cultural activities structured to appeal and engage a diverse range of age groups to bring about a greater understanding in an effort to increase education and reconcilliation.
Bush Story Trails, Tool Making and Spear throwing, Boomerang throwing, Art, Music and Dance and Ceremonial Body Painting is ancient knowledge that the Wardandi people share at the Wardan Aboriginal Centre.
An ‘Acknowledgement of Country’ and ‘Welcome to Country’ are both ancient ceremonies that show great respect for Aboriginal Culture and the Wardandi People. These ceremonies are performed on special occasions within the community and at festivals. They are becoming popular for weddings and as a cleansing when purchasing new land.
Ceremonies can be booked through the Wardan Aboriginal Centre as can all the tours and education on offer.

Set amongst 40 acres of bushland off of Caves rd, the Wardan Aboriginal Centre is a must for locals and tourists alike.
Ample parking, disabled facilities and picnic areas cater for everyone. A Cultural and educational experience that must not be missed……….

About Benji

I am married and live on a farm near Margaret River with my wife, daughter and son. I set up The Margaret River Guide to assist people coming to Margaret River Western Australia to easily find what they are looking for. I also wanted to allow people to find activities they did not know about and to be able to openly comment on/ review businesses.
