The Goolugatup Heathcote Lower Lands located at the river level of the precinct has significant cultural heritage values. Like most land adjoining the Swan River, this site was used extensively by the Aboriginal people and was the territory of one of the Aboriginal leaders, Midgegooroo and his son Yagan. The people used the space as a lookout, fishing and camping ground. It is also noted as an important ceremonial site for men and is alternatively known as Kooyagoordup (place of the bullfrog) or Goolugatup (place of the children).
Apparatus is working collaboratively with the UDLA Design Team to identify art opportunities within the detailed landscape plan for the Goolugatup Lowerlands site for integrated and/or stand-alone artworks.
Goolugatup Heathcote is a significant site to people of the Noongar Nation and consultation with appropriate Elders and / or Advisors is and important part of the process.
