WA Lands and Aboriginal Affairs Minister Ben Wyatt launched three innovative interpretive signage trails at LandCorp’s Alkimos Beach estate celebrating indigenous and local history.
Marking Reconciliation Week, the trails are designed to promote cultural awareness and celebrate the rich indigenous contribution to the culture of the area.
The interpretive signage trails were specifically designed to create a permanent learning trail around the community.
There are currently three defined trails in the neighbourhood and natural areas of Alkimos Beach that incorporate four key interpretive themes – Noongar history, recent history, sustainability, and flora and fauna.
Additional trails and signs are planned to be added as Alkimos continues to grow.
The interpretive signage feature eight inbuilt audio stories designed to enhance the residents’ experience of the local Alkimos area, and help provide a connection to pride and place through storytelling and celebrating the importance of Noongar history.
The trails were designed in close collaboration with Kambarang Aboriginal Corporation and Ecoscape, together with the City of Wanneroo and local community groups.
