Riggs Australia Pty Ltd received a grant to assist with the funding of the Esperance Historic Homesteads documentary series for Stages 1 & 2.
The Esperance region is home to a wealth of historic homesteads and buildings that are visual reminders of some of the past settlers who came before us. These relics tell a story about a dramatic and transformative time in our region's history, and the way that people lived in these isolated areas.
The people and events connected with these historic sites helped to shape some of Esperance and the surrounding region into the place it is today. Esperance Historic Homesteads is a seven-part documentary series, approached in three stages. Each episode running for approx 30 minutes in duration and focuses on a different heritage site, telling the story of the people who built and occupied these places and their significance of the development of the Esperance region.
The series can be found on the link below:
