Question: To what island were Tasmania’s original inhabitants moved in the 19th century in an effort to shield them from hostility and violence by white settlers?
Answer: From 1831 virtually all Tasmanian Aboriginal people (about 200 by that time) were relocated to Flinders Island in Bass Strait in an effort to shield them from hostility on the Tasmanian mainland. Deaths continued, however, and in 1847 the survivors moved back to Tasmania. The last person believed to be of strictly Tasmanian Aboriginal descent, a woman by the name of Truganini, died in 1876.
Question: In Australia, any inland area remote from large centres of population is called what?
Answer: In Australia, any inland area remote from large centres of population is known as the Outback. Generally, the term is applied to semiarid inland areas of eastern Australia and to the arid centre of the Western Plateau and its semiarid northern plains (in Western Australia), where bodies of water are scattered and frequently dry. The Macdonnell, Musgrave, and Petermann mountain ranges and four major deserts, the Gibson, the Great Sandy, the Great Victoria, and the Tanami, are situated in this latter region.
