beach near Garden Point, where the convicts that were incarcerated in Port Arthur were allowed to have gardens....I am finding the whole 'convict trail' thing really creepy, especially at Brickendon near Longford where the land is still owned by the Archer family, who made their millions on the backs Of convicts transported from the UK, you have heard the stories, people being sent to Oz for 7 years for stealing a loaf of bread, fucking outrageous and nothing to be proud of. If I was a trillion airs, I would take out a full page ad in the Stdney paper saying FU Archer family! I guess the is why I am not a trillion aide, oh, am I ranting??
