Take a self-guided walk through Billibellary's Country. This Indigenous walk invites participants to imagine the university landscape across time and seasons.

The walk provides a narrative, from an Aboriginal perspective, for participants to explore the university landscape while considering the social and cultural constructions of ‘place’. You can use your iPhone or Android device to download the 'Billibellary's Walk' app and be on your way, or seek assistance from our information desk on the day. View PDF map of the walk.

Times: This is a self-guided walk and can be taken at any time. The tour takes between 1-2 hours to complete.
