Event description

Description

'Then after sailing from the Cape, it happened thus: There arose some trouble between the Skipper and the Commandeur and it was caused by two Women...’
The Letter of Gijsbert Bastiaensz, Predikant written from Batavia, from here to his Bretheren concerning his perilous journey, going to India [the Indies] in the year 1628.

Start the evening with an exclusive and private tour

Using collection objects and results from recent excavations at Batavia’s graveyard (Beacon Island) in the Abrolhos, Maritime Archaeology Curator, Corioli Souter will retell the story of the Batavia mutiny from a different perspective—that of the women aboard. This guided tour will creatively explore associations between archaeological assemblages, contemporary objects, imagery and archives to consider these women as active participants in the story of Batavia.

Round off the evening

Enjoy the freshest local fish and chips with a beer or glass of house wine on the waterfront at the multi-award winning seafood restaurant, Kailis Fish Market Cafe Fremantle.

Tickets are very limited so book yours today!
