Visitors can also relax with a convict themed book or activity sheet, or challenge their friends and family to a colonial game on the lawn. Timetable to follow with a full schedule of activities soon.

Convict Tattoos
Over 37% of male convicts who were transported were recorded as having at least one tattoo. Discover the hidden meanings behind convict body art and make your own temporary tattoo.

Peg Dolls
A child in the 1800s had to entertain themselves with the materials that were available. Learn about costume and toys for children in the Victorian era and create a peg doll to take home.

Signed & Sealed
Discover the etiquette of 19th century letter-writing and try your hand at writing a letter in copperplate calligraphy. Visitors will also learn how to fold their letter to keep it secret and apply a traditional wax seal.

Convict Love Tokens
Before they were transported across the seas, many convicts made a token for their loved ones to remember them by. Find out more about these personal mementos and make your own copper token to take home.
