Tommy Windich Cultural Precinct

The Esplanade, Esperance
Western Australia

Description

The Tommy Windich Precinct represents Aboriginal people who adapted their lives to the ways of the newcomers.

Known as a fine horseman and expert in bushcraft, when he died at Esperance in 1876, he was acting as a guide for the overland telegraph construction between Perth and Adelaide.

Opened in February 2017, the cultural precinct was developed by the Esperance Tjaltjraak Native Title Aboriginal Corporation in partnership with the Southern Ports Authority, to secure the grave of the Indigenous WA tracker and explorer Tommy Windich.

Esperance Tjaltjraak Native Title Aboriginal Corporation continue to voice concerns and ensure respect and cultural consideration is given to burial grounds and sacred places.

This is site 71 on the Esperance Arts and Culture Trail map.
