Oyster Cove, Tasmania

Oyster Cove or Putalina in Palawa kani[1] is a locality in southern Tasmania near Kettering.[2] It was originally a convict station.[3] In 1847, 47 Aboriginal Tasmanians that had survived forced removal from the Tasmanian mainland to Wybalenna, Flinders Island, were moved to Oyster Cove.[4] The locality was returned to the indigenous people of Tasmania in 1995 under the Aboriginal Lands Act 1995,[5] and in 1999 Oyster Cove was declared an Indigenous Protected Area.
