Wardandi Memorial Park

This is our ancestors resting

The Wardandi Memorial Park was officially opened on Wednesday 24 April 2013.  The site is bounded by Ocean Drive, Upper Esplandade, Wellington Street and Symmons Street. 

The idea to establish a Noongar Cultural Heritage Site in Bunbury first came about in 1994, after road works encroached onto a site (Pioneer Park) that was identified to be linked to ancient Noongar burial grounds.  Twenty-five sets of ancestral remains have been reburied in a specially designated area within the park. 

The park provides a significant linkage between Wyalup – Rocky Point and the Poineer Park (the site of the original Bunbury European Cemetery).
