Hyde Park

Hyde Park is located on the corner of Vincent and William Streets, Perth and is registered as a camping, hunting, and meeting place.  

This was a key wetland campsite where turtle and fish were hunted, and the large paper bark trees were used to make shelters. 

This site was particularly important to Noongar people during summer and early autumn as a camping spot as food could readily be found in the swamps as they dried in the warming weather.

There is evidence the area was also an important ceremonial site where Noongar people from throughout the southwest would gather to trade, resolve conflicts, plan relationships, share knowledge between generations, and negotiate deals.
