Aboriginal Heritage - Melville
Whilst developing this area there was a discovery of grindstone materials which in traditional times were used for sharpening axes and spearheads.
West of Bull Creek and including up to Leach Highway was another area of significance as artefacts were found during development. From oral history of Elders, it has been revealed that this area was known to have been a site of a large uproar with the early settlers and Red Coats. Many Nyoongah people are said to have died trying to protect their traditional lands and families.
