The Spectacles Wetlands area is a significant site for Aboriginal people. The wetlands is a part of the Wajuk peoples traditional land and is known as the Beeliar territory and area of tribal elder Midgegooroo. The area is part of the greater Nyoongar language group that encompasses the southwest of Australia.

Midgegooroo and his people were transitional and, like their ancestors, moved within the Beeliar territory according to the particular season.

The Spectacles Wetlands is part of the major and ancient trade route that follows the freshwater lakes linking the Aboriginal peoples of the Murray and Swan rivers. The area has cultural significance as a ceremonial, camping and food gathering site.
