Why did Britain transport us convicts to the hellish island of Australia. It was such a cruel, horrific and inhuman thing to do?

    They ran out of room in America and decided this would be a better option.

    And yet despite the hellish cruelty, many of them survived and are the ancestors of many modern day Australians.

    That was part of the idea. It wasnt supposed to be a holiday, it was supposed to be punishment

      Australia definitely is a punishment to this very day.
