Immigration Depot MemorialPrint Page Print this page

Bronze plaque set in large rock marks the site of the Immigration Depot 1853,  and also commemorates the men who sailed to the northwest of Western Australia with sheep in 1865 in the Maria Ross.  The settlers planned to settle at Roebuck Bay near the site of Broome but the climate and the Aborigines made such a settlement doomed to failure.
