The Kaartdijin Noongar-Sharing Noongar Culture website covers all aspects of Noongar history, lore, language and culture.
Noongar country extends from Leeman in the north-west to beyond Cape Arid in the south-east. The website also displays material relating to Noongar people from outside this geographical area.
The website spans the period from European contact in 1829 to the present day.
