Convicts On Bare Island

Bare Island Fort

Today we joined some friends at Botany Bay National Park for a ranger led activity morning on Bare Island. We played the role of convicts sent from England to live in Australia. We were tried for our crimes and sentenced to 7 years hard labour in Australia. However at the end of the voyage we escaped from the guards and fled into the bush. Luckily the Aboriginal tribes people taught us a few survival skills. Eventually our 7 years were up and we were free men again.
