Event description

Description

The Ship That Never Was is a non-fiction account of convict James Porter. In 1823 Porter, along with a motley crew of other prisoners pulled off an audacious escape from their colony by wrestling control of a ship which they sailed from Port Arthur all the way to Chile. What happened there is one of those ‘truth is stranger than fiction’ tales and an awesome end to this amazing, true yet little known story that forms an entertaining view on Australian history. Adam Courtenay is the son of Bryce Courtenay.
