CY O’Connor Lecture 2022 – Postponed

Please note: The National Trust of Western Australia has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2022 CY O’Connor Lecture. We will update those who had bought tickets to give them an opportunity to re-book for the rescheduled event.

Railways, harbours, everything… On the trail of ‘The Chief’

Mike is a freelance educator and writer, and former Head of Education at the WA Maritime Museum. He is also a great grandson of CY O’Connor.

10 March 2022 marks the 120th anniversary of O’Connor’s death and Mike’s lecture will focus on Charles Yelverton O’Connor the man.

To celebrate his legacy, Mike will explore his great grandfather’s life and achievements through family stories, facts and furphies.
