From thieves and bushrangers to murderers and cannibals
Thousands of convicts were transported to Australia. Of these, some managed to escape incarceration and went on to achieve notoriety in their new land. A few tried to invent a Robin Hood reputation, taking the side of the poor settler against those in authority. Some committed crimes so heinous they were both feared and despised by the general population. Their lives were desperate, their fate often tragic. AUSTRALIA’S MOST NOTORIOUS CONVICTS reveals not only their stories but also the horror and brutality of the prison system they fought so hard to escape.
