Explore local indigenous history and culture
NAIDOC Week is an annual celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture. On Saturday 12 July as part of the celebrations, the City of Joondalup is offering a very special Umbrella Walking Tour that will explore local indigenous history and places of significance.
The tour is free and will be led by Greg Nannup of Indigenous Tours WA. The tour begins at Central Park where hot chocolate and umbrellas will be provided to help ward off the winter chill. From there the walk will continue around the city centre with the aim of providing participants with a new insight into the area.
