CHALLENGES AND ACHIEVEMENTS
Peter Lalor's challenges were that he had to gather all the miners in one area and speak to them and also he fled with an amputated arm! Bushrangers were also a huge problem for the miners some of the bushrangers were Captain Lightning, Frank Gardiner and Thunderbolt. The murderous Clarke brothers of the Clarke and Connell gang were considered to be worse than any other bushrangers of the times and became known as "The Bloodiest Bushrangers".
But his achievements were somewhat greater he found gold changed the governments mind and became one of Australia's all time heroes... or did he?
