****** History Themed Voyages ****** **** I sailed on the Lady Nelson ****** You won't believe what they got up to!

Many do not know that the orignal Lady Nelson brought the first settlers to Hobart and Northern Tasmania.

On these voyages you will hear the stories of some the people that voyaged on the original Lady Nelson during the period 1800-1825.

Some of these stories are bad, some sad and some just plain awful; our country's origins are sometimes not pretty.

You will be surprised at where these stories take us. 
People who sailed on the original Lady Nelson reads like a who' who of Colonial Van Diemans Land, Port Phillip, Port Macquarie, Newcastle and Sydney.

As an example, if you think Hobart's traffic is bad now, without the Lady Nelson it would be much worse!  Find out why.
