A space for families with children with autism, our family and low-sensory zone at Moombaki, Attadale Reserve, will be available for bookings.
Moombaki presents an epic spectacle of light, movement and sound, transforming the night sky in a choreographed drone light show, re-creating the first stories of Whadjuk Nyoongar Country for all to experience.
FREE | Bookings essential

Audio-Described Performances

Sat 20 Nov, 6pm – 7pm
Join us for a special audio-described experience of the Bullhorn performance.

Bullhorn is a powerful collaboration of Nyoongar and contemporary forms of music, dance, song and experimental performance exploring the journey of the bull shark, as it crosses from salt to fresh water, from the wardan (ocean) up the bilya (river). Taking place at sunset on the Walyalup (Fremantle) riverbank, will be a procession of performers and members of the Western Australia Youth Jazz Orchestra (WAYJO), in what promises to be an electric experience for audiences.
