Look out over the landscape and you will under-stand why Perry Lakes holds a significant place in Perth’s cultural history.

The area was traditionally used by Noongar people for shelter, fishing, hunting, and camping. Perry Lakes was not used only by one family, but was a commercial place where those travelling could stay and camp for a while.

The lakes of the Perth region are believed to have been formed by the Waugal in the dreamtime. The ancient body of laws, customs, and obligations guide Noongars in how to preserve ecological balance, while paying due respect to the ancestors, land, and spirits.

Press play and listen to the story of the area.
