Local History and Culture


Dale Tilbrook Experiences

Join Dale Tilbrook, a Wardandi Bibbulmun woman, for a talk on local history and culture in the beautiful Swan Valley, just 30 minutes from Perth, Western Australia. Aboriginal culture is the oldest continuous living culture on the planet.  In my language we don't have words for please and thank you because our social system was based on sharing according to need and available resources. But there were no free lunches. How did this all work? No written language and complex systems understood by all. Amazing. So much to explore. Join us for a fascinating journey of exploration of local Aboriginal culture. Djinang Boordwen. See you later.

Insights into your experience

Our local history and culture talks introduce participants to traditional Aboriginal life, spirituality and social systems. Dreamtime stories are about creation and events that shaped the landscape and laid down rules for everyday life. We share some of these stories with our guests and share some bush tucker snacks with you to sample.

In a relaxed setting of Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery in the Swan Valley you can taste a variety of wild bush foods, explore the bush food garden and feed the emus who are happy to pose for a photo opportunity.
