Voices of the Pioneer WomenRockingham Museum

Voices of the Pioneer Women

Come and view this exhibition revealing the roles of settler women during the development of the Rockingham district.

Discover these women’s voices through stories, images and the artefacts that they used in their hard working lives at this exhibition at the Rockingham Museum, only a stone’s throw from the beach.

Why and how did these women arrive? Were they wives, daughters, indentured servants or child migrants? The exhibition highlights the harsh conditions they faced upon arrival, how they adapted and the roles they played as school teacher, postmistress, farmer or medical attendant in the developing district.

Their stories will be told through banners, artefacts and displays.
