Murdunna is a sleepy village loved by holiday makers, reclusive artists, and weekend fishermen. About a hundred years ago, rumour has it that this ‘spot in the road’ on the Forestier Peninsula had a town hall, a school, a local store and a post office. Now, only the corner store remains. There’s a public toilet 150 metres past the Murdunna Store. In convict days, a slaughterhouse operated at the end of King George Sound. Only a few piers remain of where ships would berth to collect their loads of meat for the penal settlement at Port Arthur.
