In Noongar Country you will discover an abundance of unique plants and animals found nowhere else in the world. Enjoy the ever changing unspoiled bushland and learn how the plants and wildlife were used by the Noongar people for food, shelter, and medicine. Learn how Noongar lore survives in the culture and respect for the land (boodja).
