Join Midland and Districts Historical Society Chairperson Matthew Pavlinovich for a discussion about the legacy of Whiteman Brickworks - the family business of the Park's namesake, Lew Whiteman.

Matthew’s family has called Middle Swan home since the early 1960’s. Matthew's grandfather upon arrival in Australia was first employed by Lew Whiteman to work at the Whiteman Brickworks. Matthew will speak about the history of the Whiteman Brickworks in Middle Swan from the early days until it’s merger with Midland Brick.

While you’re here, browse our latest exhibit Whiteman Brickworks in the foyer! The event starts at 2.30pm, so there is plenty of time before the talk to explore the museum and exhibition.

Bookings are free but recommended, as places are limited.
