Encounter Bay

A History of Encounter Bay 1837

The first years of settlement at Encounter Bay were, to say the

chronicled. Worse, many accounts are erroneous. The following
account is taken, wherever possible, from original sources. In
some cases the source is a secondary publication; these are
details that I have been unable to confirm.
