Frank Broeze discusses the development and operations of conferences in the late nineteenth century, focusing especially upon the port of Fremantle. The West Australian Shipping Association was an organisation of colonial merchants established in response to the complete dependence of Western Australia on a small group of British shipowners and brokers for its main shipping link between London and Fremantle. Broeze states that the history of the West Australian Shipping Association provides considerable insights into the complex process of the transition from sail to steam in the British and American trades to Fremantle and a unique inside account of the prevailing commercial conditions.
