Description:

Early engraved portrait of Woollarawarre Bennelong (c.1764?) a senior man of the Eora people of the Port Jackson area who belonged to the Wangal clan of the south side of Parramatta River.

Bennelong was brought to the settlement at Sydney Cove in November 1789 by order of Governor Phillip. He escaped after three months but later returned, keeping in contact with Phillip. In 1790, Bennelong asked Phillip to build him a hut on what became known as Bennelong Point, now the site of the Sydney Opera House.
