Summary

Jenna Biddi Yorga “women’s feet walking on the path”, in Whadjuk Noongar.

Come join us on a Whadjuk cultural heritage journey along Kwoppa Kepa (Bicton foreshore) and through Jennalup (Blackwall Reach Reserve). Running along Jennalup is one of many dreaming trails which traverse along the Swan and Canning Rivers. This dreaming trail on the southern side of the river is the yorga biddi (women’s trail) and the men’s trail is found on the northern side. The sand spit (Djoondalup), connects these two trails. To the Whadjuk people Jennalup was traditionally a place for women and children, and carries the story of Djunda the Charnock woman. Download the Geotourist App to listen to the audio recoRoadings from Whadjuk Elders Marie Taylor and Noel Morich sharing their stories of this area. Alternatively visit the Explore Parks WA website (Swan Canning Riverpark) to hear other audio stories shared by the Elders about this part of the river.
