Esplanade Park and the Bubonic Plague

From its creation in the wake of the bubonic plague outbreaks; to the Depression Era when it provided a home to the homeless unemployed; to the many voices that spoke at the bandstands and on free speech days; to the important institutions that fringe its edge – the Esplanade Park has stories of Fremantle to tell.

Historian Dr Michelle McKeough is giving a talk about the history of Esplanade Park as part of Fremantle Heritage Week which runs from the 25th May until the 4th June.
