At the time of settlement, the Bilya (‘river’) Bindjareb Noongars were made up of three family groups with main camps in what are now the Mandurah, Pinjarra and North Dandalup areas. They were part of a broader network of Noongar people who had lived across the Southwest corner of Western Australia from at least 40,000BC, connected to one another by ceremony, trade and social relationships. The site is significant because of the massacre of Aboriginal people that took place on 28 October 1834. Further details and a walking trail can be found by clicking here
