'Maali' is the Wardandi word for the black swan and along the Western and Southern cost of the South West, 'up' means 'place of' ('up' changes to 'in' at the border of Wiilmun boodja). For example if you drive down South West Highway you will come to a town called Wagerup. When you go inland you will find a place called Wagin. Waitj or Wej is the emu in local Noongar languages, so they both mean "place of the emu'. Interesting facts like these abound in our cultural activities and experiences at Dale Tilbrook Experiences/
