The foundations of our Australian democracy had a shaky beginning due to the differences between the former military officers and free settlers, known as the Exclusives, and the former convicts, known as the Emancipists.

Come along to question 6 people, Elizabeth & James Macarthur, Elizabeth Macquarie, Samuel Marsden, architect Francis Greenway and Mary the Maid, about their different viewpoints.  Then join us for supper and discuss whether the Exclusives or the Emancipists were correct.

Bookings essential. $30 per person.
