In the opening years of the nineteenth century the islands in Bass Strait were the happy hunting grounds of sealers, and such was the fame of the region that sealers from as far afield as Mauritius...

It was the practice of merchants of Hobart and Sydney to send gangs of sealers to live on the islands, providing them with some provisions, but expecting them in the main to subsist on the flesh of kangaroo, wombat, and emu.
