Counting on the Hill

Friends of Cantonment Hill


The Friends of Cantonment Hill is a group of volunteers who work to maintain and care for the site known as Cantonment Hill/Dwerda Weelardinup. It is on Whadjuk Noongar Boodjar, and has important Noongar cultural significance. The area includes a Bush Forever site which is celebrated in this book. In 2011 the Fremantle City Council commissioned the Masterplan for Cantonment Hill. It is the hope of the Friends group that this Masterplan will be fully implemented so that the Hill can best be enjoyed by the community and appreciated as a precious natural space.
