Put a name to a place
Albany’s Noongar community and City of Albany executives gathered on Wednesday to celebrate the next phase of the City’s dual naming project.
Albany MP Peter Watson presented the City with a Lotterywest grant of $84,000 to support the progression of its Restoring Menang Noongar Boodjar Place Names project.
In partnership with the Menang Noongar community and South Coast Natural Resource Management, the City will continue exploring the traditional Noongar names for places across Albany.
