Description

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Hougoumont, the last convict ship to arrive in Australia, Transportation examines the forced migration of convicts from Britain to Australia in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Transportation presents the stories of men, women and children forcibly sent to convict sites around Australia, exploring the social tragedy of the convict system as a whole as well as individual stories of personal achievement.

Exhibiting convict material from the Mitchell Library (State Library of New South Wales), Western Australian Museum and the Prison’s own collection, Transportation demonstrates the impact forced migration had on individual transportees and their families, and on the shaping of modern Australian society. The exhibition displays key historic artefacts such as the 1881 Ticket of Leave of Hougoumont convict William Bartlett, on display to the public for the first time.

Transportation is a free exhibition and will be on display in the Prison Gallery until March 2019.In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Hougoumont, the last convict ship to arrive in Australia, Transportation examines the forced migration of convicts from Britain to Australia in the 18th and 19th centuries.
