Air Raid artwork official launch

Published on 12 August 2022


The Shire of Broome is holding an official launch of our new Air Raid artwork at Town Beach later this month as part of the Shinju Matsuri Festival.

Nine Zeroes Nine Stories is a commemorative piece acknowledging the Broome Air Raid, where 88 people were killed by Japanese fighter planes on March 3, 1942.

An official launch was scheduled for earlier this year to mark the 80th anniversary of the Air Raid, but was postponed due to Cyclone Anika in March.

The Shire would like to welcome the community to a small launch event on Saturday, August 27 from 10.30am to noon at Town Beach.

The event is being held in partnership with the Broome Historical Society, St Mary’s College and Broome Senior High School.
