According to Johnny Rodd from Badjebup Aboriginal Corporation Da is a prefix that means mouth/entrance/access to. You will often find ta in the place name sentences. The word part -ta is the same sound and carries the same meaning, like many nyungar words the spelling difference is due to the person who originally recorded the word.[1] Goordandalup is an example of the usage of -da.
