Mainly open and fast farmland littered with complex and challenging granite in sloping to hilly terrain. This area was first used in Easter 1993.

NOONGAR

Bitidiin means ‘Place of Ants’.
(But don’t worry, despite the name, we’ve been unable to find unusual quantities of ants at this location!)

Peterdine/Bitidiin is in the boodja (country) of the Ballardong Noongar people, who lived in the broad Avon Valley, east of the escarpment.
