I will present a low-frequency, broadband polarisation study of the FRII radio galaxy PKS J0636−2034 (z = 0.0551), using data from the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) from 70 to 230 MHz. The large, continuous wavelength-squared coverage across the MWA band allows the polarisation and Faraday rotation properties to be determined with a precision approximately two orders of magnitude better than traditional cm-wavelength radio interferometers. A combination of rotation measure synthesis and broadband polarisation model-fitting are used to constrain the Faraday depolarisation properties of the source to very high accuracy.
