Through Outcast Eyes - Low Head, George Town, Mt. George and the Tamar Valley
The appearance of Europeans in the Tamar Valley in Northern Tasmania is very recent. They came to stay in this ancient land just over two hundred years ago. Some were driven by scientific enquiry and the desire to explore ‘new’ worlds. Some were empire builders seeking control of the seas. Others came as ‘refuse’ from the streets of England, as entrepreneurs seeking wealth and status, and as ordinary people escaping poverty and famine. These migrants discovered, built, killed, destroyed, created, mined, divided, bought and sold. They changed the landscape enough to make them feel at home and also learned to accept and adapt – and they grew to love this place.
Through Outcast Eyes is a journal with a companion CD that takes you on a journey in the Tamar Valley of Northern Tasmania. You are invited to explore the landscape, places of interest, history and people of this special place through the eyes of those who became outcasts through both force and choice.
