Seven Weeks in the Swan River Colony
The Journal of Mary Ann Friend
As a young bride in 1829, Mary Ann Friend set sail on the Wanstead embarking on a two year journey with her husband Matthew Curling Friend, Captain of the Wanstead.
The journal she kept during this voyage contains one of the earliest accounts of the Swan River Colony.
Nearly 200 years later, the journal returns to Fremantle.
Join us at our expert talks happening about the journal throughout November.
