September 2015 saw the official release of the long awaited publication BOODJIN - The Boyagin Rock Storybook.
The release of this awesome publication marks a major milestone for the Noongar peoples, and forms part of the long term strategy established by the Pingelly Tourism Group Inc. Boyagin Rock Working Committee to promote Boyagin Rock (referred to as Boodjin by the Noongar peoples) as a site of cultural significance and a place which should be protected and respected by visitors to the area.
The stories tell of the long term connection to this site by the Noongar peoples.
It describes much of the local flora and fauna and makes for a great read for those interested in Aboriginal culture and their spiritual connections to the land.
The on-line version of the storybook can be downloaded here.
