Colonial Tasmania: The Early Years Documentary
Colonial Tasmania: The Early Years is a fascinating online documentary that tells the story of how Tasmania, or Van Diemen’s Land came to be settled by the English in the early 1800’s. Presented by Jamie Roberts, this short but informative documentary covers the initial settlement at Risdon Cove, the eventual settlement at Sullivan’s Cove along with the somewhat disastrous early attempts at settlement in the North of the state along the Tamar river.
If you are a fan of Australian History, you’re sure to love this well researched documentary that paints a very different picture to the iron bars and stone jails we’ve come to associate with later colonial settlement in Tasmania.
