Isolated VoicesNorthcliffe Pioneer Museum

Isolated Voices

Exhibition, displays, storytellers, poets and song.

Northcliffe’s Group Settlement Scheme was a hard and isolated lifestyle change for the British and Welsh immigrants and jobless Australians who arrived fresh to Western Australia. These agricultural pioneers were sponsored by the scheme to form working bodies for the dairy industry. However, during the period of the group settlement, the scheme was the subject of three Royal Commissions exposing the scheme’s far reaching costs, both financial and personal.

Visit the museum for an opening exhibition featuring bardic story telling, poetry and music highlighting the isolated emergent explorers, naturalists and farmers.
