Why did the British settle Australia, while the Dutch, French and other sensible people only stopped over to boost their Frequent Sailor points?
Why did Captain Cook’s goat receive an award for the Endeavour voyage and what role did Joseph Banks play in world surfing and tattoo culture?
How did handkerchiefs become an early Australian currency and why did rum taste so much better?
What do interfering with a fishpond, removing a rabbit from its warren and being in the company of gypsies for one month all have in common?
Who was Lachlan Macquarie and why is Tasmania?
You will have no idea to the answer of any of these questions if you don’t join David when he sits down to chat with Kurt Haller.
