The centre showcases local indigenous heritage and culture, as well as the Australian Rose Maze, which explores Australia’s rosegrowing heritage and shares the poignant stories of the three women – Yoondi the Noongar, Elizabeth the English and Maria the Italian – who are set into the paths of the maze.
Visitor and Cultural Experience
The Kodja Place tells the inside story of Australian country life in ways that will move and delight you. Voices, photographs, art and objects from Kojonup’s Noongar-Aboriginal and settler cultures are woven together in imaginative and richly-layered interpretations.
This beautiful gallery takes you on a journey from a Noongar-Indigenous creation story to reflections on modern farming, tracing the vastly different ways in which local people have been sustained by this land. Personal experiences, both poignant and comic, are threaded through the layers of this sweeping story of cultural and landscape change.
