Tracks trodden for millennia have become Perth’s roads and highways.
Described by the early colonists as Paradise, the land where Perth City now sits has been home to the Nyungar since the Dreamtime (nyitting). As the traditional Aboriginal people of Perth, Nyungar people are the first people of this land, constituting fourteen tribal clans of the South West of WA.
Sacred sites remain, secreted in and amongst the foundations of Perth’s central business district and suburbs. Perth’s modern skyscrapers sit atop ancient campgrounds and a vast network of forgotten lakes.
