The Eureka stockade

goldrush

how it started

in December 1854, an uprising of miners on the goldfields near ballarat became one of the most debated events in Australian history. Eureka was a rebellion involving important principles about the right of people to protest against government actions, soon after a big clash was created between the government police and the gold miners. Thirty men were killed and hundreds were wounded but the battle was so silly scince it was the shortest battle in Australia's history, the battle took only 7 minnutes!!!
