Relying on contemporary evidence about the development of Australian white settlement, from Port Jackson to Van Diemen's Land and the colonisation of Victoria, 'The Vandiemonians' follows the lives of ordinary families to explore the island jail's layered society of officials, pastoral settlers, convicts and Aborigines. It describes the colonising of the Port Phillip district by Vandiemonians, both free and freed, and their conflict with new immigrants from England.

The story of early Melbourne illustrates differences between colonial and old-world outlooks. The chaotic years of the goldrush bring out the fear and stigma of former convicts in this new 'free' society. A long campaign to end the Australian policy of supporting all religious sects succeeds after Independents newly arrived from England mount a personal attack against their leading minister, an Irish Vandiemonian, for supporting this colonial practice.
