In episode twelve Boe yarns with Associate Professor from the University of Tasmania Kristyn Harman author of Aboriginal Convicts: Australian, Khoisan, and Maori Exiles.
As a result of the frontier wars fought across parts of Australia (and also at other British colonies’ frontiers), Indigenous men ended up being transported as convicts. They served their sentences at places including Van Diemen’s Land, Norfolk Island, and several of the penal islands in Sydney Harbour (Goat Island and Cockatoo Island). Several thousand Aboriginal men and boys also ended up being transported to Rottnest Island off the south-west coast of Western Australia.
