Jenna Biddi Yorga “women’s feet walking on the path”, in Whadjuk Noongar.

We invite both women and men to walk this path, however we ask all the men who do so to respectfully acknowledge Jennalup (Blackwall Reach) as a women’s area in the past, and encourage the men to continue this acknowledgement into the future.

Come join us on a Whadjuk cultural heritage journey along Kwoppa Kepa (Bicton foreshore) and through Jennalup (Blackwall Reach Reserve).

Running along Jennalup is one of many dreaming trails which traverse along the Swan and Canning Rivers. This dreaming trail on the southern side of the river is the yorga biddi (women’s trail) and the men’s trail is found on the northern side. The sand spit (Djoondalup), connects these two trails. To the Whadjuk people Jennalup was traditionally a place for women and children, and carries the story of Djunda the Charnock woman.

Download the Geotourist App to listen to the audio recordings from Whadjuk Elders Marie Taylor and Noel Morich sharing their stories of this area. Alternatively visit the Explore Parks WA website (Swan Canning Riverpark) to hear other audio stories shared by the Elders about this part of the river.

Loved this Noongar trail in the middle of suburbia. Much to learn and reflect on

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
