The White Divers of Broome: The True Story of a Fatal Experiment

Author(s): John Bailey

Broome History | Broome's Top 10

The True Story of a Fatal Experiment1912 Broome was as much 'Asian' as 'Australian'. The town thrived on the hugely profitable, but extremely dangerous, pearl shell industry. It was a frontier town where racial tensions simmered. This is a gripping narrative that echoes with many of the same fears and hopes as society today. Winner of NSW Premier's History Award: Community and Regional History 2002.
