LANGUAGE WARNING

Tasmania has both a mesmerising, understated physical beauty and a violent, blood-soaked recent history. It was also one of the most intense and brutal theatres of war during the Frontier Wars - a conflict which, for a country that just can't seem to get enough of war, Australia can't manage to acknowledge in any meaningful way.

So, while traveling through Tasmania, and with another Australia Day looming on the horizon, I wrote this. This is not intended to be exploitative, but a small reflection of what is becoming a monumental shift in awareness in the history of the nation.
