Vintage 2024 Welcome to Country

Thursday 8 February, 5.30pm - 7pm
Pioneer Park, Cowaramup

With vintage 2024 commencing you are invited you to join Wadandi Pibulmum Elder, Dr. Wayne Webb for a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony, for everyone who has recently joined our region to work vintage in our wineries and vineyards. The traditional smoking ceremony is used to cleanse and purify the spirit, body and soul and signifies the beginning of something new.

The free event is hosted by the Margaret River Wine Association and the Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association and will also feature live music by The Nomadics.

Guests are encouraged to BYO chairs or picnic blanket.

Whilst living, travelling, visiting and holidaying on Wadandi Boodja, we ask that you respect the area and walk softly on the country, taking the time to listen to Boodja (Country) as she Wongi (talks) of the season, and leave nothing but footprints.
