Collie River Heritage Trail Sign 2



The Eaton Foreshore lies within the Bibbulmun or Nyungar/Noongar Boodjar (country). The Wardandi, Pindjarup and Wilman people are the Traditional Owners and Custodians of this land. They are distinct socio-linguistic groups within the South West of Western Australia who have been living and caring for country for over 47,000 years.

The Wardandi, Pindjarup and Wilman people used this land for hunting, fishing, camping and ceremony, and to visit and pay respect to their sacred sites.

This walk trail promotes their cultural identity and history, reflecting the unique and spiritual relationship they have with the Boodjar (land) and Beelya (river). This walk trail is called Koorliny Beelya (“water going along”).
