David Dunlop was a forceful man with strong convictions, and he was far ahead of his time in the treatment of aboriginals.
He advocated the wisdom of contracting with any willing aborigines for the completion of a limited and specific task.
In 1841 a convict by the name of Charles Jones escaped from David Dunlop at Mulla Villa.
He became a bushranger on the Great North Road until his capture three months later.
This is where convicts slept at night. Spot the meat safe (not around in convict times), plough, ball and chain, hand pump and telecommunications equipment.
In convict times hessian and saw dust were used to stop the noise of the convicts affecting the Dunlop family that lived above them. Spot the rings in the walls.
