Sandy Bay

I think this is my best video yet and I'm very proud of it. I had a lot of help and the story is amazing so that made it easier and I spent over 6 weeks filming this one.

I learned the origins of modern Sandy Bay and how the area has changed, but also stayed the same. I found out a little about the first Tasmanians who lived off this land. How the land fed the people both before 1803 and after. It was really the food bowl of the south. I learned the importance of fresh water and about the people who were exiled three times and arrived by boat to be pressed into service as farmers in their 50s.

I also discovered my own connection to Sandy Bay and how the area played a significant role in my early life.

I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did making it.
