The Kodja Place tells in a vital, vivid, human and sometimes confronting manner the Kojonup story and the influences, cultural, economic and geographic, that formed the Kojonup of today.
Several areas make up The Kodja Place and its story:
The Kodj Gallery
Yoondi's Mia Mia
The Story Place
The Australian Rose Maze
The effort of hundreds of local volunteers is evident in the design and construction of The Kodja Place. It demonstrates the significance of Noongar and Wadjela cultures in the district and exists as a graphic illustration of the evolution of a multitude of similar communities across Australia.
The impact of government policies and other cultures on the local Aboriginal way of life is acknowledged while at the same time a forceful demonstration of the reconciliation process is clearly presented.
It provides a focal point for local cross-cultural harmony, and its existence, its activities and its success provide a source of community pride, a community meeting place and a pivotal expression of the cultural makeup of Kojonup.
