"Wybalena was established in 1834 as a so called “Aboriginal Settlement” by George Augustus Robinson for the purpose of making the inhabitants “Civilised and Christianised “ Many died there

I visited Flinders Island in November 2019 and spent two days at Wybalena

The indigenous presence is palpable

A chapel remains and the remnants and foundations of other buildings

I found the brick footprint of the Chaplin’s house

This is his garden" (Luke Wagner)
