Wanjoo - Welcome

Sat 26 May 2018

10:00am12:00pm

WA Maritime Museum


This year we open the Fremantle Heritage Festival where the Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River) meets the wardan (sea). As we cast back our minds to reflect on the past, we embrace the present and the people within it.

Elder Marie Taylor will perform a Welcome to County and be joined by musicians Gina Williams & Guy Ghouse. This free* family friendly event is focused on children and their families.

The stories and songs will continue into the morning and all are wanjoo (welcome) to join in as Marie, Gina & Guy share stories and songs in Nyoongar language and music.

This event is presented by the WA Museum and the City of Fremantle

*Entry charges to Horrible Histories - Pirates: The Exhibition still apply.
