Colonial criminals were often sentenced to secondary penal settlements such as Newcastle, Port Macquarie, Moreton Bay, Norfolk Island and Cockatoo Island. Among them were the bank robbers Carol Baxter wrote about in Breaking the Bank and the bushranger Captain Thunderbolt and his accomplices. This seminar provides information about these penal settlements and their surviving records, using the bank robbers and bushrangers as examples.
