Tuesday, March 12, 2013 – On Land and Harbour

We began the day with a visit to the Sydney offices of Ernst & Young where we met with Rob Locke. We had a fascinating discussion that focused on the international aspects of fraud investigations and the globalization of enforcement actions.

After a quick lunch, we made our way to the Hyde Park Barracks Museum. The barracks served as a prison for newly arrived convicts beginning in 1819. Along with adding to our understanding of the early history of Australia, the museum also offered us a glimpse into every day life for the convicts sent to the penal colony.

Having moved quickly from event to event the last few days, the students spent the remainder of the afternoon on a relaxing cruise of Sydney Harbour.
