When Angus McMillian and the Highland Brigade rode through Gippsland in 1843, they aimed to murder as many Gunai Kurnai children, women and men as they could.

At a quiet bend on a beautiful creek they committed one of the worst acts of indiscriminate killing in the Australian colonies.

Drawing on official archives and oral histories that have never died, this is the story of The Warrigal Creek Massacre.

Because to move forward we must acknowledge our past.



Produced and directed by Andrew Dodd and Lisa Gye.

Production and research by Danielle Bowen, Jonathan Boadle, Jakeb Fair, Alex Owsianka, Don Sheil and Ben Winnell.

Supported by Swinburne University.
