Title: Day trip to Victoria Settlement Port Essington
Name: Richards, John
My Story: We first tried to go to Port Essington 11 years ago, but the tour that day was cancelled, and we finally got there recently. In the mean time I had read Peter Spillet’s book, Forsaken Settlement ISBN 0701803347 and Jim Allen’s Port Essington ISBN 9781920898878. This was well worth the wait. The remaining buildings are very impressive, and you really get the feeling of the isolation experienced by the garrison and their families. The crocodile that greeted us at our landing place was an extra reminder of the perils the early settlers faced. One of the best things I’ve done in the Territory in the last two years.
