Boodja Ni = Listen/listening to country
Boodja Ni means ‘listen/listening to Country’ in the language of the local Bibulmun/Pibelmen people of the Noongar nation. These were the original custodians of the Southern Forests.
We invite you to listen to the land beneath your feet as you explore the Understory trail. Listen to the birds, the insects, the sound of the wind through leaves.
You can also listen to our range of audio tours. You can listen while you walk or listen another time.
