Kids Encyclopedia Facts

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