Swamp Clubb will create an immersive multi-sensory walking tour enabling inner-city commutersto re-connect with the vast Perth wetlands that flourished in central Perth until they were drained between 1830-1880. Participants will transcend this familiar urban landscape and reconnect with it’s ecological, socio-cultural and spiritual past.

“As it is beautifully expressed in Noongar language, a ‘yannow; to saunter; to walk; to move slowly along’” - Nandi Chinna, Swamp: Walking the Wetlands of the Swan Coastal Plain.

Racing to arrive on time to work is a common experience for many people. Swamp Clubb will interupt this ritual, providing a playful opportunity to pause, chat and re-connect in Northbridge.

“Anne Cameron suggests that whilst many people are aware that global environments are facing unprecedented degradation, a deeper, more important issue is the ‘real human capacity to forget a disappeared environment’” - Nandi Chinna, Swamp: Walking the Wetlands of the Swan Coastal Plain.
