Australia a nation of immigrants. This game from the Liverpool Museum takes you on the almost 3-month journey from England to Australia in 1858. From the initial decision of whether to emigrate to the final decision of what to do once land fall is made in Australia, you help the patriarch of the family in his family’s quest. Along the way you can find out why so many emigrated, and what the trip was like on the crowded ship. After you’ve completed your journey, be sure to explore the picture gallery that has more information, both pictorial and textual, about the emigrant experience.
