The proposed name Yam Daisy Walk reflects Indigenous culture, which offers an ideal opportunity to educate the broader community about Traditional Owner history and culture connected with the locality.
Yam Daisy refers to an edible crop that was a key food plant cultivated in the area by the Aboriginal peoples. It therefore reflects the important role of cultivation in Indigenous culture.
Cultivation was a feature of Aboriginal land use, with Aboriginal peoples engaging in working the land, managing soil, and clearing vegetation to encourage the growth of edible crops, such as Yam Daisy.
