Pobasso and the Cucumbers


It's Australia....but not as you know it.

Based in the Top End of Australia about 250 years ago.

Follow the adventures of Pobasso, with the Makassan Fisherman on his first voyage to Australia.

He discovers the first Nation people and learns about their culture, language, music, about the rainforest, about the reef.

He also learns to fish for Sea Cucumbers, and process them ready for export to China, which is the reason for the Makassan's voyage. 

Pobasso and his friends returned to these shore many times. On his final visit to Australia he met and assisted Matthew Flinders with his circumnavigation of Australia, teaching him about the rich culture, traditions and international trading of the First Nations People of Australia.
