Have you ever wondered about the story of the land you live on?
The Swan Coastal Plain
The Mooro tribe of the Noongar people called this area home for 40,000 years thanks to a chain of wetlands which supplied them with plenty of food and water. It’s believed that the Pipidinny Swamp was created from the blood and meat of the crocodile’s tail as he walked back towards the Swan River after his fight with the shark!

The Barque Eglinton 1852
Following settlement of The Swan River Colony in 1829, many ships made their way to Australia with much-needed cargo for the new settlers. In 1852, a 462-ton barque named The Eglinton, carrying much-awaited cargo, was wrecked on an outer reef off the coast near Alkimos. The wreck was discovered in 1971, with Eglinton being approved as a suburb name in 1974. Credit: Research Data Australia
The name Allara is an indigenous word meaning sunlight. It portrays positive, bright connotations with a calming and fresh feel. This provided us with inspiration for the Allara branding.
