Journey by Dawn

Perth City, King’s park, and Point Walter sandbank [YouTube video]

As restrictions ease in Western Australia, I have been keen to go outside and explore this city that is new, even to me!

Elizabeth Quay, Kings Park, and the mystical sandbank called Point Walter. Watch the video to find out more!

 

In short summary 

I find Australia has a double history of places and meanings. The Aboriginal story and the story of the European settlers. Australian Aboriginal meanings based on nature and images, from the dreamland and the Europeans, often based on references to people and their own history.

Being of Lithuanian descent, as most Lithuanians I feel close to nature, which has a mystical way to healing and fulfilling my soul. I was drawn by Australia and found here exactly what I expected!

Western Australia, however, has a completely different feel to Victoria and Queensland. In my 6 years living here, I have visited all and lived in most of the major cities and can make some comparisons. The Western Coast is nothing that I’ve seen before. So unique in colors, wind, and sun!

The first stop: the Elizabeth Quay, which is a port right in the city center near the Swan River. It is a historic site where Australian Aboriginals used to come to hunt for food, while the Europeans converted it to a plaza of trades and attractions.

The King’s garden is a very popular, large park overlooking the city. It is so easily accessible from the free parking and is very organized and clean.

The last stop was Point Walter or rather in Aboriginal language: ‘the place of white flowing hair!’ is a sandbank, which is visible and walkable only during low tide. But there is a beautiful park as well, impressive colors at sunset, which is unique every evening, gently unforgettable and heartwarming.

I hope you enjoyed watching, I am still learning… but really enjoying your comments and support. Looking forward to sharing more as we end this isolation time! 🙂

My next project

As for every third culture kid, a place to belong is everywhere! In my next video I will show you a lake near my house, that was nearly completely dry in the summer but as winter started is filling up fast and now has taken a complete transformation! And I want to share more about the experience of belonging as a TCK – which makes me and those others of mix cultural background similar to the lake – adaptable, flexible, spontaneous, accepting, and strong. 🙂
