Undalup Association is a not-for-profit organisation formed in 2012 by a group of passionate people turning ideas into reality.
Undalup is the Wadandi word for Busselton named after a great Wadandi Warrior, ‘Undal’. Undalup Members believe that “from little things, big things grow”.
Put simply, our goals are to:
Share the Wadandi culture, traditions, knowledge and history
Teach the importance of Boodja (Country)
Teach the importance of respect for Wadandi Elders and Traditional Custodians.
Some of the ways we support the growth and diversity of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities are by:
Building awareness of the traditional culture and heritage of the South West
Providing positive opportunities for Aboriginal people
Providing unique community events, educational workshops and projects
Creating collaborative relationships with other community organisations
We believe that the shared ownership of our events and projects will lead to a more reconciled and respectful future giving us all a sense of belonging and drawing everyone into the cultural, spiritual, heritage and historical aspects of the area.
Undalup intends to work with local businesses, groups, organisations and industry to increase awareness of the South West as a destination where Aboriginal culture is strong, vibrant and diverse and to develop, in consultation with Aboriginal communities, sustainable Aboriginal tourism products and experiences.
