My friend Greg Nannup of Indigenous WA is conducting FREMANTLE INDIGENOUS HERITAGE TOURS, so check out the website and make bookings through there:

Take a journey to the time of the Wadjuk, the traditional custodians of Fremantle, Perth and the Swan River. Learn about Fremantle’s untold history spanning from the Ancient Dreamtime to the arrival of the early explorers and settlers. Hear an ancient Dreamtime story of the Nyoongar people.

Visit the Roundhouse Prison, Western Australia’s first public building, and explore the history under the guidance of the Fremantle Volunteer Guides.

Follow the story of Yagan (The Wadjuk Warrior) and Midgegooroo (The Wadjuk Elder of the Beeliar people) who both resisted settlment at a costly price in the year of 1833.

Visit the Fremantle Whaling Tunnel, learn of early whaling and hear the Aboriginal perspective as to ‘why whales beach themselves’. Discover bush food and interesting native coastal plants.

Hear stories of the Dreamtime and discover how sustainability and caring for nature was a way of life.

Tours departs from the lawn of the Shipwreck Galleries Museum, Cliff St Fremantle and take 90 minutes.

Schools please contact regarding excursions and Incursions.

I have participated in tours by Greg Nannup a few times and highly recommend them!
