About the Event

Karinga Road campsite, in Harry Perry Park, has a history dating back more than 50,000 years. The campsite was part of a network of places Bindjareb Noongar people used for camping, accessing water, and hunting for animals such as koomal (possums), yongka (kangaroos), kaarda (goannas) as well as fish from the ocean, Maali Boodja (Marlee Reserve) and the Serpentine River.
