Amazing People of Sydney
By Dr Charles Margerison
Imagine you had to sail 10,000 miles to an island in the South Pacific Ocean in an old wooden boat. In 1788, that happened to over 1400 English convicts, colonists, captains and men of the Marine Corps. Watched by fearful local Aboriginals, they established a base in a place called New South Wales, Australia. Who were these amazing people? What great stories do they have to tell? How did they survive and build the great and beautiful city that we now call Sydney? A city tour unlike any other, Amazing People of Sydney brings you in touch with real people who have left us a legacy that we can explore.
Travel through time and meet some of the amazing people who helped Sydney develop. Read how Governor Arthur Phillip and Bennelong, the captured Aborigine, tried to build relations between the communities.
