Description of “The Boab Prison Tree”
A Boab tree survived for some 1,500 years in the harsh Australian outback to grow to a girth of 15m as it gradually hallowed out. Instead of celebrating and protecting it, legend has it that police merely used it as a convenient holding cell in the 1890s for shackled Aboriginal prisoners en route to sentencing.
