Our City Our Story

Welcome to Country

Welcome to Country at Adenia Park Canning is situated in the traditional lands of the Noongar people, who are the traditional owners and custodians of the south-west of WA for roughly 45,000 years. Their knowledge and respect for country, which has been passed down by generations is deeply respected and acknowledged by the City.

Gnullar kaditj nitja Whadjuk Noongar boodjar. Gnullar Canning moort wongi nitja kura wiern, yeye birdiyah, moort, koolingah koorliny nitja gennuniy yirra nitja boodjar Djarlgarro Beelier. Gnullar barruniny baal marr wort koorliny.

We understand that this is Whadjuk Noongar country. Our Canning family speak to the people and spirits of yesterday and the current leaders, families and children who still move and look over this place along the lands of the Canning River. We hope to move forward hand in hand together.
