Nowanup is a rural property, 150 NE of Albany WA, purchased in support of the Gondwana Link program. Gondwana Link has a focus on ecological restoration and management with the work intimately tied to the Indigenous peoples and respecting and utilising their expertise in land management and caring for country.
Noongar Elder Eugene Eades has led the development of an extraordinarily successful caring for country and cultural sharing programs, including residential camps, at Nowanup. There is an urgent need to build on the success of this program and transition from the current voluntary management. A coordinator is needed to develop a framework and systems that support the Nowanup program to become self-governed and self-managed.

There are additional funds to support the Nowanup program, including website development. In consultation with the Nowanup Working Group, these funds will be dispersed by the Coordinator in a manner that best supports Nowanup.
