About Kaalitj – ngort Koondaam, Bateman Park
Come join us on a river journey to learn more about the significance of the Djarlgarro Beeliar (Canning River) to the Whadjuk Noongar people, and its surrounding area known as Gabbiljee, "the watery place at the end of the river".
Running along the Bull Creek tributary at Bateman Park in Brentwood is a River Journey, which showcases the cultural heritage and natural values of this area. To Whadjuk people the Djarlgarro Beeliar and Gabbiljee are a source of life.
