The City of Wanneroo is seeking feedback regarding proposed earthworks to create a Yarning Circle at Kalbarri Park, Yanchep.
The existing gravel circle at the park is being informally used as a cultural meeting place with local stakeholders, including local Aboriginal leaders, local schools and the Yanchep Police and it is being proposed that minor earthworks be implemented to enhance the use of this space as a place that fosters cultural and community connection.
The proposed earthworks will include compacting a portion of the existing gravel circle, pouring white sand to the remaining section, and installing a semi-circle of limestone concrete seating and six wooden poles. The City intends for the poles to be painted by local students in collaboration with an Aboriginal artist to reflect the Noongar Six Seasons (timeframes for completion of the poles are subject to external factors).
