Be welcomed into Menang Boodja and immerse yourself in the traditional stories, tucker and history surrounding the Fish Traps.
The Albany Fish Traps, also known as the Oyster Harbour Fish Traps, are a series of traps situated in Oyster Harbour near the mouth of the Kalgan River approximately 14 kilometres east of Albany and were constructed over 7,500 years ago. They were returned to the Menang people through the Albany Heritage Reference Group Aboriginal Corporation in a ceremony in 2009.
The tour will provide an understanding of the fish traps and their importance to the Menang people. You will also be introduced to a range of local bush tucker. There is a broad range of edible flora available which was gathered to feed families meeting in the area.
Menang man, Larry Blight will amaze you with his knowledge and love of country as he guides you through an unforgettable afternoon of culture.
