This resource explores the history of Broome and the rich multicultural community that supported its pearling industry. The site features a virtual museum providing a range of primary source material including photographs, newspaper extracts, historical documents, video and audio recordings. The site explores the history of Aboriginal and foreign workers including official regulation of indentured labour schemes and enforced internship during World War 2 and the personal impact this had on workers and their families. The education resource that accompanies the site provides three inquiry sequences that unpack and analyse the sources provided.
