Abstract

The paper examines the period between 1820 and 1920 to explain why the ports of Twofold Bay-Boydtown and Eden never sustained their challenge to Sydney's economic hegemony. These small ports provide an interesting insight into the economic marginalisation of localities by the process of colonisation. Twofold Bay is examined within Rimmer's spatial model of port development. Uneven port development is examined as the geographical expression of several colonisation processes
