Bridgetown LandingPrint Page
Monument commemorates the first landing in Bridgetown.
The first explorer, an Augusta settler, Thomas Turner, traced the Blackwood River upstream to its junction with the Arthur River in 1834. Although a report was then sent to Perth, it was twenty years before an official expedition was undertaken. Augustus C. Gregory, Assistant Surveyor, led a party from the upper Blackwood to the coast in 1845,and later conducted a survey of the district in 1852.
