'Remembering Myall Creek' with Bruce Pascoe
The brutal, senseless massacre of 28 people on Myall Creek pastoral station in the New South Wales northern tablelands in 1838 echoes still.
In the litany of massacres, Myall Creek stands out - because it was the only mass murder for which some of the men responsible were charged, tried and executed for their crimes.
The ringleader, John Henry Fleming, escaped justice and died an unrepentant old man north-west of Sydney in 1894.
A symposium was held to mark the 180th anniversary of the massacre and the writer Bruce Pascoe delivered the keynote address.
