Watercolours from the period show women fishing in canoes, people eating fish around a campfire outside a bark shelter and a 'family' carrying the equipment they used in their daily lives.
The frequent, and possibly incorrect, attribution of these watercolours to Governor King (Phillip Gidley King, the elder) is based solely on the caption to the etching A Family of New South Wales published in John Hunter, 1793.
