Information

A unique place has been created here to commemorate the life, death and spirit of the great Nyoongar leader and warrior, Yagan (c. 1795 - 11 July 1833) and as a Burial site for Yagan's repatriated Kaat.

Yagan's body was buried on the site where he was killed and his Kaat was taken as a trophy to England. Since the early 1980's, a number of Nyoongar groups sought the return of Yagan's Kaat, however after 164 years it was finally brought back to Australia for burial in accordance with Nyoongar custom. Now that the Kaat is respectfully laid to rest, Yagan's spirit is set free to continue on its eternal journey.

The park is open between 9am and 5pm 7 days a week.

There are no toilets here, just a paved walk trail and parking area.
