Students will learn about the daily life of the clan that inhabited Sydney Cove, including the fishing rites, oyster beds, and the connection between the Gadigal people and the land of Tubowgule.
Students will learn about the daily life of the clan that inhabited Sydney Cove, the changes that came with the arrival of Governor Phillip and the first settlers, and the fascinating story of the man called Bennelong.
