Catalpa Memorial

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Catalpa Rescue is an epic tale of truly international proportions, linking Ireland, Australia and the United States of America. It ranks amongst the great escapes of the world and is an intrinsic part of Rockingham’s history.

The Catalpa Memorial “Flight of Wild Geese” commemorates the rescue of the six Fenians who escaped to America on the Catalpa in 1876 from Rockingham shores.

The memorial is a statue depicting six wild geese in flight, the design of which was initiated by an Irish-Australian Perth citizen, the late Francis Conlan.
