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.
