Woodman Point

Site Type: Mythological
Archaeo./Ethno: Ethnographic
Side Id./Co-ords: 15841 / Coordinates: 382346mE, 6444228mN, Zone 50 (Reliable)

Woodman Point (site ID. 15841) is an ethnographic site recorded, along with theCockburn Road site (ID. 15840), in 1997 by McDonald, Hales & Associates, during a survey under the Aboriginal Heritage Act (1972). The Woodman Point site is registered as Mythological and described as being of ethnographic importance. The McDonald, Hales & Associates report which mentions the account given for recording and registering the site also mentions another version previously recounted in work by Bates (1985) and Wilson (1972) and notes the thematic similarity. It was stressed that no development be allowed to impinge on the site.

The possibility of encountering skeletal material was of concern to the Nyungar people consulted, as the dune areas may have been used for burials.
