Want to experience a day in the life of a convict?

A convict was a person who committed a crime and was sentenced to transportation from their homeland to a penal colony on the other side of the world. They were required to work as labourers and servants for the duration of their sentence. In the Australian colonies, convicts were assigned to work for the government and free settlers.

Become a Lanyon convict in this role play program that provides hands-on experience of convict life. Students are introduced to historical enquiry skills, such as examining and exploring different perspectives and different information sources in relation to the 1830s convict era.  Imagining and empathizing with the convict experience, students will relate their personal experience to life as a convict at Lanyon Homestead.
