Carnarvon is the result of meshing of cultures. The first settlers to join the Indigenous Aborigines were of British descent. They were followed by Afghan and Chinese peoples. As the plantation industry developed, Italian, Portuguese and Yugoslav settlers came. (Foreword)
Published to commemorate the centenary of the gazetting of Carnarvon as a townsite in 1883, this book provides an overview of the town's history to the early 1980s.
