Baladong Boodjah is an artwork of the Baladong area in Nyoongar country of the south west of Western Australia. the artwork shows the Avon and mortlock rivers running through the country between the town of York located on the far right to Northam at the cross section of the two rivers.

This is significant area as i was born in Northam and my fathers family come from York, my father grew up on the York reserve 5km out of the York town centre. the painting shows the soil in reddish and yellow colour as in found in the area. the farmers prefer the red dirt to the yellow as it hold water better. the artwork shows the vegetation of the area before it was cleared for farming and is now know as the wheatbelt.

I am the first generation of my family not to have grown up on the York reserve but lived in both towns of Northam and York both in the area represented by the artwork.
