Cast your mind back to an island ‘girt by sea’, a penal settlement in the middle of Sydney Harbour with stories overflowing of charlatans, rogues, thieves and cut-throats – and they’re just the guards!
Crooked Characters of Cockatoo Island and other Colonial Escapades is an hour-long family friendly journey into the hilarious and fascinating underbelly of Australia’s colonial and recent history and mythologies.
