Have you ever wondered what Perth was like before it was a city?
Welcome to Gabbi Darbal in 1827.
Like many other cities around the world, Perth was founded on wetlands. These environments have played a significant role in the city’s development, and are important habitats for a range of species. This project aims to raise awareness of the cultural and environmental importance of Perth’s wetlands.
This project includes three-dimensional digital modelling of Perth’s lost wetlands based on:
for the Claise Brook catchment from Herdsman Lake to the Swan River.
The digital modelling, archival maps and botanical illustrations will be exhibited downstairs at the Perth Town Hall from 21 September to 9 October. The opening of the exhibition will be on Sunday, 21 September at 3.00pm.
This is a joint project of Edith Cowan University, City of Perth, Landgate, City of Vincent and Claise Brook Catchment Group.
