Artist's Description

This image was taken at the Wyballeena Chapel which is on Settlement Point Flinders Island.

This area is very important to the Tasmanian Aborigines. It was in this area that that Truganini and I think about a hundred and fifty Tasmanian Aborigines were taken.

Most of them succumbed to despair and illness so this place does not have a very pleasant past. The chapel was restored in 1974 and is close to place where they were buried.

The land surrounding this and up to settlement point is now aboriginal land.

Please forgive me for this very short story as the actual history is fascinating and complicated. Unfortunately I am very short on time at the moment
