A de­bate has reignited over whether Lake Mon­ger should be re­stored to its Abo­rig­i­nal name Galup.

‘I agree with Len Col­lard. Su­bi­aco Coun­cil changed the name of its lake to the lo­cal and cul­tural name of Lake Jual­bup. - Cr Julie Mathe­son

‘How about a com­pro­mise, name “Ge­off”. I just don’t see the need for the re­nam­ing of any­thing or any place.

- Harry

‘Lake Galup’ is very close sound­ing to ‘Lake Gwelup’.

- Katie Roberts

‘Pro­posed re­de­vel­op­ment plans for the for­mer Royal Perth Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Hos­pi­tal at Shen­ton Park were re­leased last week. Watch this space. - Peter Bas­tow

‘Yuck for the plans. High rise in the sub­urbs, and in 10 years’ time they’ll say why did we close that and be look­ing to build an­other type hos­pi­tal in the area at a cost of many mil­lions. - Colin Stan­ley
