Called ''Hells Gate'' by the convicts as they knew once they went through they were entering the hell that was Sarah Island. Considering that in 1828 8004 lashes were issued.
Thomas Kent -12 Lashes, telling lies.
John James- 36 lashes, shoving a fellow prisoner.
William crafts- 12 lashes, Trying to sell brooms
Cornelius Quin- 25 Lashes, Trying to sell soap
Richard Sheridan- 50 lashes Getting shoes mended.
The name was very apt.
It was a lousy start to the trip with wind and rain and this was one of a very few pictures taken on the way there. Luckily the rain cleared just as we arrived at Sarah Island.
Head South and the next stop is Antartica. Our boat went through and up the Gordon River, the entrance to a vast Heritage listed wilderness.
