The true story of Australia’s most notorious convict, Alexander Pearce and his infamous escape into the Tasmanian wilderness.
Van Diemen’s Land was a dreaded penal settlement at the end of the earth. “Abandon all hope ye who enter here” was the warning plastered at the Macquarie Harbour’s entrance. In 1822, eight convicts escaped the harbour in a bid for freedom. However, their plan failed. They then faced a harsh, barren landscape, with little food or equipment. The immigrants battled a merciless enemy – a new land they knew nothing about.
