Connecting Myall Creek and the Wonomo

Davidson, Iain and Burke, Heather and Wallis, Lynley A. and Barker, Bryce and Hatte, Elizabeth and Cole, Noelene (2018) Connecting Myall Creek and the Wonomo. In: Remembering the Myall Creek massacre. University of New South Wales Press, Sydney, Australia, pp. 100-111. ISBN 9781742235752


This paper examines the impact the massacre at Myall Creek had on subsequent frontier interactions in other parts of
Australia. It is argued that its aftermath in the region then known as Northern NSW, where a Native Police force was formed a decade later was extensive and that Aboriginal responses to the event provide new insights, including how people from different Aboriginal groups at the time may have heard about Myall Creek and other violent clashes with white settlers, and how their families remember frontier conflict today.
