Noongar Wonderland

Noongar Wonderland 7.30pm Perry Lakes FREE
3 – 5 Mar at Perry Lakes, FREE

A Perth Festival Commission
Conceived by Boomerang & Spear in partnership with Perth Festival

Lights. Country. Action!

This land still vibrates with story and song. For centuries, Perry Lakes was a million-star hotel for locals and travellers to gather, share and celebrate. It is ready to host us again – for a special Festival closing weekend created by a team of Noongar artists and designed for everyone to join in.

Noongar Wonderland is a multisensory experience guided by stories of Country. Weave your way through an immersive light and sound installation between the two lakes. Sit with artists and handcraft something both age-old and new. Feel the pulse of song and movement as the energy of the sea and groundwater overflow into a technicolour dance party. This is Noongar-futurism for the old, the young, for everyone!

Check back after Thu 27 Jan for full details of all you can experience.
