Lots of early settlement history in Bengkulu and long before Australia was supposedly discovered too. Fort Marlborough (Indonesian Benteng Marlborough, also known as Malabero) is an English fort located in Bengkulu City, Sumatra. It was built between 1713-1719 by the East India Company under the leadership of Governor Joseph Collett as a defensive fort for the British Bencoolen. It was one of the strongest British fort in the eastern region, second only to Fort St. George in Madras, India.
