Farmers Home Hotel, Northam

For over 150-years, the Farmers Home Hotel has been at the heart of the Northam community and a place of welcome and comfort for everyone from pioneers to premiers.  This rich heritage served as inspiration throughout the hotel’s multi-million dollar restoration and conservation, which resurrected the Northam landmark on the same principles as which it was founded, to reopen as a modern boutique hotel, wine bar and Dome Café. 

Ngarjarli Art Viewing Trail, Murujuga National Park

Completed in August 2020, the Ngajarli Art Viewing Trail was a collaboration between the Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation and the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, as joint managers of the Murujuga National Park.

The Ngajarli Art Viewing Trail has been carefully designed to achieve cultural safety and caring for Country in a very sacred place. With minimal infrastructure and intervention, a series of walkways, interpretive signage and gathering spaces have been created to better manage visitation, provide cultural education and culturally safe viewing of the petroglyphs.

OldPerth Project

The OldPerth website provides an unprecedented way for people to discover, navigate and browse historical images of Perth and surrounds. The OldPerth website indexes over 10,000 images from the collection of the State Library of Western Australia and presents them on an easy to use mapping interface.

The website is simple to navigate – images of a specific Perth building at a particular location can easily be found within seconds. The OldPerth website is available to view at: OldPerth: Mapping Historical Photographs of Perth.

Strawberry Hill/ Barmup, Albany

Strawberry Hill/ Barmup has exceptional cultural heritage significance. It is on an important Aboriginal camping area known as Barmup and was the first European farm in Western Australia. The place is representative of the meeting of two cultures - the first farm fences began the dislocation of Aboriginal people from their traditional lands. To better tell this story, the National Trust redesigned its visitor experience strategy and commissioned a new visitor hub to orient visitors and implemented a new tour-based visitor experience.

The new visitor hub at Strawberry Hill/ Barmup has transformed the site by encouraging visitors to change their perspective from a focus on historic buildings in an attractive garden to a broader understanding and appreciation of its cultural landscape values.
