Healing Country and Healing People is what Uncle Eugene Eades and his team are passionate about. Nowanup Noongar Boodja tells a story of ecological restoration and cultural restoration. Spending time surrounded in country that has been brought back to life through the foresight and care of custodians; nurtures and nourishes the koort (heart), kaat (head) and wiirn (spirit).

Arriving on country to a chorus of birdsong, sharing the walking trails with wietj (emu) and yonga (kangaroo); wildlife has returned to sing and thrive within the restored bushland. Healing huts or Mia Mias, hold safe places for sharing and reconnecting. Walk with Goreng Noongar Elder Eugene Eades, traditional custodian with strong family connections to this land, ancient customs and traditions.

Spending time at Nowanup has been described as ‘knowing you’re part of something bigger” a part of sacred country that was once tangled up, drought stricken and in a mess, is now healthy and thriving, growing stronger everyday.

 As Uncle Eugene reminds us, “If we heal the country, the country will heal us”.
