      Today the sun shined hooray! So our planned trip to Port Arthur historic sight to see the famous penal colony from the 1830s was on. We found the road from Hobart to The Tasman Peninsular, where Port Arthur is, interesting and because it was sunny we could really appreciate the stunning scenery. The road hugs the coast some of the way, but there are tree covered hills alongside, with green rolling fields between. There was evidence of relatively ...

      When I was about 19 or 20 years old I used to get a rock climbing magazine called High. I can still see the picture on one of the front covers in about 1995 of a sea stack called the totem pole. I was so amazed by it I always hoped I'd see it one day. Today was nearly this day!

I learnt that any spider with a ...

      ... with any other convicts. This form of solitude prison was based on one in England and it was said to drive the men mad. Hence, there was an asylum right beside the Separate Prison and many of the men ended up in there.

      For a while, boys were placed in the same penitentiary as the men. At just seven years old, a child was considered an adult and legally responsible for his own actions and behaviours. In England, there were many poor boys who were forced into crimes ...
