Description

Five years before the well documented settlement of the Derwent estuary, sealers established semi permanent settlements on the islands off the North East Coast and began an industry that was to have far reaching consequences. Forgotten Frontier also tells the story of the settlers who braved the remoteness on this remote region to establish long term grazing ventures.
