Abstract

The incorporation of maritime frontiers is essential to any discussion of exploration, frontier studies, and cross-culture contact and colonisation processes in Australasia. This thesis presents a model for understanding maritime society, cross-cultural contact and informal colonisation processes that transformed society and environment across Australasia's 'Southern Ocean frontier' - the mainland coast and offshore islands of Australia and New Zealand where newcomers came into contact with Indigenous peoples. In investigating early sealing and whaling sites it applies this model to study of the Archipelago of the Recherche and adjacent mainland of Western Australia's south coast.
