Fair Dinkum Dutch Courage

Join the Bass Strait Maritime Centre for a talk with Elizabeth Nikols
In the 1950s, some 180,000 Dutch people emigrated to Australia. A significant proportion of those moved to North-Western Tasmania – Penguin and Ulverstone in particular. Leaving a country that had been ravaged by German occupation, they left their homes and families to settle in a foreign country on the other side of the world. Most arrived with little money and meagre possessions and were unable to speak English. Determined to integrate into their new home, they overcame many obstacles, worked hard and over the following years made a significant impact in social, industrial and business areas.
