Where the Really Bad Boys Went

If you thought Australia was far south, go south some more – to the island of Tasmania. Viewed by 19th century Brits as the end of the earth, it was a last stop penal colony. Thousands of convicts in Britain were sent to prison outposts in Australia (seen as more humane treatment than the gallows – hmmm).

But some continued to misbehave so they were sent on to Tasmania. 75,000 very bad boys ended up here. So “Tassie” has evolved with a funky mixture of tortured history and isolated, natural beauty. Perfect Gothic vibe.
