<p> The circle of dots represents the campfire where all people, family, and friends gather around the fire to share stories, dance, and celebrate this sacred space - where the land meets the sea.<br /> <br /> The four figures symbolise everyone, including family, friends, and neighbours walking and working together - side by side - as one. To Aboriginal people, fire, family and people working in harmony are closely linked, so this symbolism is important and is what the Undalup Association Inc. is about;<br /> <br /> “Undalup is also honouring a place for healing and connection to Noongar Boodjar (Country), embracing the elements given to us from Boodjar Ngarngk (Earth Mother), celebrating the “meeting place” and bringing harmony on the land we all walk together” -<br /> <br /> Chairman of Undalup Association Inc., Iszaac Webb<br /> <br /> Undalup Members believe that: “From little things, big things grow".</p>
