||Tommy Dower, bottom right, was an important figure in the Aboriginal groups living in the Cockburn-Mandurah district in the 1880s and 1890s. He accompanied Alexander Forrest (centre, seated) on his expeditions to the Kimberley which resulted in the opening up of millions of miles of land that would be the foundation of WA's cattle industry and have important ramifications for Robb Jetty and the Cockburn coast.
