Summary
"In August 1856, a party comprising British colonists and Wathaurong warriors ambushed and killed a Gadubanud, now known as Kolakngat, group encamped at the Aire River. Led by the contract surveyor, George Douglas Smythe, the well armed expedition marched through the Otway Ranges (in southwestern Victoria) with official sanction to capture an Aboriginal man accused of killing a member of Smythe's survey crew, James Conroy in 1846. Using contemporary reports from the colonial press and subsequent commentaries published by anonymous observers, this article provides a detailed account of the massacre and the suspicious circumstances surrounding this tragic episode in Victorian history."
