Welcome to Place, outside building 1, is designed to welcome everyone who passes through the area and to provide an opportunity to learn about various aspects of traditional Whadjuk Nyoongar knowledge.

Design aspects include coloured and patterned paving to reflect the prevailing south-west wind and local plants such as balga trees and the coastal daisy (or saltbush).

Pro-Vice-Chancellor Col-|leen Hayward said the reflection spaces reinforced the message of welcome to all members of the ECU community.

‘They will also serve as places where all people can pause and receive a positive message of affirmation,’ she said.

The opening ceremony will start at 11am and feature Nyoongar singer-songwriter Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse.
