Mudurup Rocks

Mudurup Rocks is the limestone promontory on the sea side of the Cottesloe Surf Club. The site is significant to the Nyungar people, and the name means “the place of the yellow finned whiting”. The associated shoreline to the south is said to be associated with the half-human, half-crow, known as Kudjil (the Crowman) who protected the Nyungars and announced to them when the fish would run and when the storms would arrive.

The area is now cared for by Cottesloe Coastcare.
