The effect on Aboriginal people on gold By Jannifer. Roberts
Aboriginal people there say on gold Its a mystery that Indigenous Australians were simply bewildered spectators of the gold rush. Many worked on the sheep stations, provided their expertise of the land to gold hungry diggers, engaged in trade with the miners or were members of the Native Police Corps
Mining Aboriginal lands The gold rush was a second wave of dispossession for Australian Aborigines, many of whom had already been forced from their land by pastoralists. The massive influx of diggers onto their land and the ensuing environmental destruction had a lasting impact.
Death on the goldfields To make matters worse, the gold rushes had a devastating effect on Aboriginal people for a number of years. Diseases such as smallpox and measles were rife because of the poor conditions in which people lived on the goldfields.

One early traveller wrote, We frequently got a native to go a distance with us as a guide, for which we gave him a stick of tobacco and plenty tucker, viz., damper and mutton, or a bellyful to eat
Bendigo Miners It all started at Bendigo in 1854, where fame of its riches spread all over the world, attracting miners and would be miners from afar as California, China and Europe. Today Bendigo still displays is 1850s wealth with its Victorian Era architecture.
