Watch the rising of the final full moon of Bunuru over the Darling Range at Meeka Moorart – Full Moon Ceremony, an Aboriginal-led cultural event featuring soul-stirring music, dance and captivating storytelling that never fails to delight.
In 2024, Meeka Moorart will be accompanied by a Maker’s Market showcasing the talents of Aboriginal makers, artists and small businesses from across WA.
Since 2019 we have held a full moon celebration as part of the Danjoo Koorliny Festival, immersing ourselves in nature as we celebrate and watch Meeka (moon) rise. This year we will watch Meeka rise from Gaboodjoolup, South Perth Foreshore. The festivities will begin at 5pm, with the moon set to rise at 6:24pm.
Please feel free to bring a picnic and a rug or chairs to sit on the grass. There will be a karla (fire) to keep us toasty, and a designated Elders space.
Together we will be singing the evolving Meeka Moorart Full Moon song, which has a new verse added to it each year. The song was recorded with Dr Noel Nannup OAM, Dr Richard Walley OAM, Farley Garlett, Carol Innes AM, Della Rae Morrison, Ezra Jacobs-Smith, Elisha Jacobs-Smith and Kobi Morrison, along with John Butler, Iain Grandage, Zal Kanga-Parabia and others, mixed by Kav Temperley (Eskimo Joe).
Join us on the banks of the Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River) for this immersive Noongar-led cultural event featuring local artists.
This all-inclusive event is suitable for families and friends and is an alcohol-free event.
