On Australia Day, the setting seems fitting since Redcliffe was once a Moreton Bay convict settlement for the most hardened of criminals and difficult prisoners It had a reputation for violence and death from disease. In 1831, convict numbers peaked at 947 but declined to 374 in 1835 as the convict settlement closed.
