James Pascoe Fawkner arrived in Port Phillip more than thirty years before he was to become one of the founders of the city of Melbourne. In April 1803, aged ten, he sailed from England with his parents on a British government expedition to establish a colony on Bass Strait. Fawkner's father was one of 300 convicts who were transported on HMS Calcutta and landed at Sullivan Bay near present-day Sorrento in October that year.

The settlement was short-lived, and the colonists, led by Lieutenant Governor David Collins, moved to Van Diemen's Land, where Collins founded Hobart Town and where Fawkner remained until 1835 when he returned to Port Phillip and settled on the Yarra. Fawkner's reminiscences of the Sullivan Bay camp were written in his final years. Sometimes gossipy and judgemental, they nevertheless form a unique account of the beginnings of European settlement in Victoria and Tasmania.
