You'll play different roles – some are very colourful characters! You'll hear lots of stories. Join in a sing-a-long to raise your spirits on your long voyage. When you arrive at Botany Bay you'll take part in an absolutely wild 'convict escape' that takes you to a new environment. You'll find out about how the early settlers lacked bush survival skills, contrasted with the excellent bush skills of the Aboriginal people. Finally, we'll come back to the present. Convicts will be issued with a 'Ticket of Leave' for good behaviour, so they can return to their community as a free person.
