Cultural Amazing Race

Our Cultural Amazing Race has been specially designed by Dale Kickett to take your organisation on an educational adventure around the Perth metropolitan area. In teams you will join Wirrpanda Foundation mentors on a race visiting significant sites exploring the timeline of Noongar history.

Teams gather at Beedawong Meeting Place in Kings Park for a traditional Welcome to Country and a safety briefing, before commencing the race from the significant Boab Tree. The Race can be tailored to suit your organisation with half or full day options available. Teams will be greeted by Wirrpanda Foundation mentors at each significant site where they will learn about the history of the area and participate in activities, and then complete questionnaires at each location. The day concludes with a debrief and traditional lunch with Foundation mentors.
