Bennyowlee Grave Site Print Page Print this page

Grave Site and plaque commemorate Bennyowlee, an aboriginal community leader.

The area on the corner of Ocean Reef Road and Joondalup Drive is the site of the grave of Bennyowlee who was an Aboriginal prophet and senior Juat tribesman of the Nyoongar people. Bennyowlee dreamt that the aboriginal culture would go into a decline with the arrival of the Europeans, but that it would continue and eventually flourish again. A plaque has been erected in the general area and the land surrounding this memorial is being restored so that it can once again be used as a dance site.
