Aboriginal Cultural Tours
Optus Stadium stands on the land of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation.
The stadium was carefully designed with input from a group of local Aboriginal people – the Whadjuk Working Party.
Warrang Bridil’s Aboriginal Cultural Tours aim to ‘close the gap’ on knowledge and understanding of Nyoongar people’s heritage through the sharing of their culture.
Join one of Warrang-Bridil’s guides on a walking tour along the shores of the Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River).
As part of the tour, see understand the importance of culture, language, values, relationships, responsibilities, a shared purpose, wisdom, knowledge and social structures in aboriginal culture. You’ll hear stories of how the Nyoongar People lived in a functional community with value, purpose and leadership in nurtured environments.
See Nyoongar cultural influence in the development of the Optus Stadium Precinct and Matagarup Bridge and join in a traditional Nyoongar Ceremony and understand how cultural tools and artefacts are paving the way for modern technology.
With direct connection to the Whadjuk, Yued, Ballardong, Wilmen, Wardandi and Binjerup People and Country, this aboriginal tourism experience is not to be missed.
“By re-connecting with our culture, values, purpose and leadership today, and educating ourselves and those around us, we can work together to build a better Nation for tomorrow.”
