The Broadhursts were clearly an extraordinary group. This online exhibition documents and describes the rise and fall of the family, as well as their lasting legacy in Western Australian history.

The exhibition also examines in detail the SS Xantho: the first steamer to work in WA waters.

Entwined with curator interviews, this compelling online exhibition will take you through one of the more extraordinary and fascintating stories of 19th century Western Australia.
