Reconciliation Action Plan

The Bunbury Geographe Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a collaborative effort between the Shires of Harvey, Dardanup, Capel and the City of Bunbury.

The RAP outlines a number of objectives and initiatives that will inform the policies, practices and procedures of each Local Government Authority (LGA). While development of the RAP was a cooperative effort, there will be specific policies and initiatives that will apply to all LGAs and others that will be delivered by individual LGAs.

The Shire will be developing a new local Reconciliation Action Plan in consultation with local Noongar Elders in 2023.


Our vision is to achieve genuine reconciliation in our communities through strong relationships, recognition of traditional land owners and celebration of our rich cultural diversity and history.


  • Walking together.
  • Talking together.
  • Learning and growing together.


In the way we have worked together to develop this RAP, the Reconciliation Action Plan Reference Group has enshrined the values for reconciliation:

  • Recognition of Australia’s first nation of peoples.
  • Respect for each other’s world view.
  • Acceptance and Celebration of cultural diversity.
  • Sharing of knowledge, culture and values.
