A step back in time

The origins of Nichols Point date back to the mid 1800s. The town's name itself derives from a somewhat remarkable and truly intriguing series of events involving an Englishman named John Nichols, his horse and one seemingly invincible bull. Danielle Wilcock spoke with Robert Nichols, great grandson of the late Mr Nichols, about the facts surrounding this famous tale. Picture: Krystal Torney

THE story begins with a young man from Norwich England who, alongside his family, sets sail for Australia with hopes for a better life.
