Come, sit by the water, and share in the ancient and living stories of First Lights – Kooranup. 
The Fremantle Biennale’s acclaimed drone light and sound experience, First Lights, returns in 2023 with Kooranup. This epic spectacle of light, movement and sound will transform the night sky with 160 drones taking flight over wardan (ocean). Pioneering new technology and artistic practices to share ancient knowledge, Kooranup will reveal the first stories of place across three weekends and three locations in the Perth region. Revealed will be a series of connected stories by artists Yabini Kickett, Cass Lynch, Tyrown Waigana, and Ilona McGuire, guided by Whadjuk Nyoongar Traditional Owners. The first two performances will take place at Walyalup (Bathers Beach), Dyoondalup (Attadale Reserve), with the last chapter unfolding across the ocean on Wadjemup (Rottnest Island). This closing event to the Fremantle Biennale offers a space for deep contemplation across land and water, weaving together the many stories across time, both beautiful and heartbreaking, that are held by the island. This performance is led and guided by the Fremantle Biennale Cultural Advisory Group. 
Registrations required

Microbat Night Stalk at Broz Park

Explore the world of microbats, join a bat survey, and discover nighttime wildlife on a guided walk.

Shire of Mundaring residents and ratepayers are invited to attend this FREE workshop.

Join us for an exciting event hosted by the Shire of Mundaring and the Conservation Council of Western Australia!

Did you know that bats, which make up about 20 percent of the world’s mammal species, are still a scientific enigma in Western Australia?

Bats are more prevalent in Perth than you might think. In the metropolitan areas of southwest WA, you can find nine species of microbats. Among these, the Gould’s Wattled Bat and the White-striped Freetail Bat can be spotted in the Perth foothills.

These insect-eating marvels can bring significant benefits to all of us, and chances are you’ve crossed paths with them without even realising it. A single microbat can devour over 1000 insects in a single night, including those pesky mosquitoes. Essentially, bats are nature’s very own super pest controllers!

Learn more about Citizen Science Programs, including the Dusk Watch and Bat Monitoring Programs. Afterward, we’ll embark on a nocturnal adventure around the lake, armed with a bat detector to uncover the mysteries of the night.

Just remember to dress appropriately for an outdoor stroll and bring a trusty torch along for a bat-tastic night!

Our History: Framed by a rumbling railway, rolling hills, and lush vineyards, Swan Settlers Market holds a unique place in history. This iconic building was constructed in 1923 on the fertile soils of the Swan Valley, making excellent use of the East-West railway line.
Serving as a fruit packing shed, it became the heart of the region, showcasing the abundant produce of the Valley throughout the seasons and emerging as one of the largest fruit exporters in Western Australia.
After 80 years of operation, Swan Settlers Co-op reluctantly closed its doors.
Swan Settlers Market is once again bustling with life and purpose.
This 100-year milestone is a testament to the resilience and evolution of our community. We invite you to join us in celebrating the past, present, and future of Swan Settlers Market. Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to be a part of history.
We look forward to sharing this special moment with you. See you there!
