We visited the Redlands Museum and I was amused to see many items that we had in our home when I was growing up or even later. I was scared to stand still for too long in case people though that I was a museum piece too.
It was interesting reading about the history of the Redlands City. This young German girl migrated to Australia by herself with the trunk of belongings, when she was only 16 years old.

A sad part of our history was when native people from the South Sea Islands were taken by force to work on the sugar cane plantations in Australia. They were called Kanakas.
