    Wergijan

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wergijan was the name given to the District of Beverley by the Aborigines who followed the seasons and the game animals over a wide area around Beverley. Many European settlers were shown where water could be found in dry seasons by the Aboriginals when they first came to the area. Because of their abilities and knowledge of the country and bushcraft, John Forrest chose two local aborigines to accompany him on his expeditions across the bottom of Australia in 1870. They were given the European names of Tommy Winditch and Billy Noongale.
