Explore the birds in your backyard and the histories behind how they came to be here in this interactive walking tour, which takes you from Boojamulling (Hyde Park) to Goologoolup (PICA).

Join Aboriginal leader and Nyoongar Traditional Owner, Walter McGuire, and bird conservation specialist, Lindall Kidd, and hear traditional stories of Nyoongar Bibbulmun Boodja, including the Whadjuk lands on which the City of Perth now stands, uncover pre- and post-colonial histories, and find out how to get involved in wildlife conservation.

Finish up with art activities inspired by Argentinean-Australian artist Fernando do Campo’s exhibition To companion a companion – a cheeky ode to the winged companions that flit among us.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian(s) at all times.
