The Seascapes Interpretive Walkway was installed in 2017 to support community learning about native species and Aboriginal use of plants and animals.
Local school students from Halls Head College and South Halls Head Primary worked with the Traditional Owners of the land, Seascapes Coastcare Group and an environmental artist to create a walkway of interpretive signs. The aim of this project is to educate and engage the local community and promote responsible use of the area.
Seascapes is an area of high biodiversity and cultural significance to the traditional owners of the land.
The fourteen interpretative signs along the 3km section of the coastal pathway contain information about common species of flora and fauna and their uses by local Noongar people.
In addition to the signage, the project also involved planting in the nearby dunes by the Community and both schools.
Aboriginal students from the Follow the Dream program at Halls Head College also created their own Creation Myths, which can be viewed below.
This project is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program; supported by Royalties for Regions; City of Mandurah; Halls Head College; South Halls Head Primary School and Seascapes Residents Association.
