For 80 years the Dunwich Benevolent Asylum was home to the indigent of Queensland. The Asylum kept the poor out of sight on an island off Brisbane. It provided welfare on the cheap and relied on the labour of local Aboriginal people.
The book is a political, social and ecomomic history of the institution and its people and is produced by the North Stradbroke Island Museum on Minjerribah
