The ‘Merenj Boodja’ Bush food garden is an ideal meeting place between the land and sea for all people.
A community garden project with a connection to Boodja (country), the garden is filled with bush food plants depicting the six seasons recognised by Noongar culture. This special project is a great example of the collaborative relationship the Undalup Association has with the many groups in the area.
The garden in the ArtGeo Cultural Complex creates an ideal path in reconciliation with the community, a place of remembrance for the Aboriginal people, acknowledging the past and moving into the future. The community will learn and gain cultural knowledge of the land, arts, language and the people.

It was great to wander through the old gaol and get the feel of what it was like. It's awesome that it has been restored and put use. The Courthouse itself is now a painting gallery.

I enjoyed walking through the old cells and learning about the history of early Busselton. The rest of the complex is very much an art gallery/store of the contemporary type which wasn't my cup of tea at all. Free entry.
