In 2012, an interpretive walking trail in Perth’s Banksia Grove was developed for the Mungitj Eco-Art Bushland Trail project. Weaving along Botanic Avenue in Banksia Grove’s Discovery Park bushland, the trail features signage and artwork that acknowledges the customs and practices of the land’s traditional custodians – the Noongar People.
Artist Darren Hutchens worked with traditional owners, local artists and students from Neerabup Primary School to make the project a success. Through generously sharing their knowledge and talents, these project participants created a trail that celebrates Aboriginal culture and educates the wider community on how the bush was traditionally used by the Noongar people.
The Mungitj Eco-Art Bushland Trail project was a community art and education collaboration between CAN, Banksia Grove Development and Relationships Australia.
