Voices of the Pioneer Women
We give a voice to four Pioneer Women that through their strength made a difference to the lives of many in our district. Enjoy displays and artefacts telling their stories of courage and perseverance.
During the Australian Heritage Festival we are highlighting 4 amazing women.
While many families came to farm, making their homes in the bush, the women had no idea what lay in store for them. Expecting paradise, these female pioneers encountered heat and dust, isolation, wildlife, no medical facilities and never-ending backbreaking work.
We, through the telling of stories and sharing artefacts from their lives, add voices to four Pioneering Women that endured to raise families, bring education and served the medical needs of Rockingham district.
We are sure you will enjoy their stories and we hope that you will discover much more about our colourful past. Our museum is open 5 days a week to give plenty of opportunities to visit and experience Rockingham Pioneering era.
