This exhibition is fantastic especially for those looking for knowledge about the Kimberley. It covers time from 1907 when the first nuns arrived in Beagle Bay to look after children who had been removed from their families due to the governments new policy. How they managed to survive in the heat and dust and flies in their heavy habits with no air con is just amazing. They just got on with it. The exhibit also covers healthcare including the leprosarium in Derby and lots of other communities including Balgo, Looma and Bidyadanga. There are interactive computer screens, lots and lots of photos and a comprehensive guide to make it easy for you to follow. It is a must see if you have any interest in history. A valuable learning tool. Amazing!
