    It may be the top spot in Western Australia for horse sports, but the State Equestrian Centre (SEC) in Brigadoon is also an area of great environmental and cultural significance.

    Located in the City of Swan, the ‘Waugal Lagoon’ wetlands at the SEC are one of the most sacred Aboriginal sites in Perth.

    The wetlands are also part of the critically endangered Swan Vegetation Complex, and are classified as a Bush Forever site.

    City of Swan Mayor David Lucas said a joint conservation project with World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF Australia) is now underway to protect these wetlands and their Aboriginal heritage.

    “The City recognises the wetland area both for its environmental value and the significance that it holds to the Traditional Owners of the area,” he said.

    I cannot find a detailed layout of the SEC. Is the lagoon near the RDA paddocks or on the other side of the building?
