Common Gate Exhibition at Broome Civic Centre

Nyamba Buru Yawuru and the Shire of Broome are re-exhibiting the renowned Common Gate exhibition as part of the national recognition of the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum.

The exhibition at the Broome Civic Centre will open to the public on Sunday 28 May between 10am and 4pm, and for school groups on 29 and 30 May between 9am and 2pm. 

Explore the social heritage of Broome through the fascinating personal stories of people and life in the 20th century pearling town. 

Local Aboriginal people grew up at a time when they were denied equal rights as citizens and excluded from the town itself.

This vibrant exhibition shares the personal experiences, love lives and everyday events of the time and reveals how life was lived with the challenges of exclusion and racial segregation.

Since 1967, with native title, Aboriginal people are social and economic participants in Broome and the exhibition is a chance to explore the changes in the town, and across the nation.
