Front Inscription

The Eureka Rebellion

This plaque is placed in memory of the brave diggers of 16 nations who fought and died for independence and freedom on the goldfields of Ballarat in 1854.

By decision of the VTHC, the Eureka Flag will always fly from this building to remind us of their courage and sacrifice.

It will serve to remind current and future generations that the fight for our rights, freedom and independence continues.

Donated by the Electrical Trades Union and unveiled by Peter Lalor and Dean Mighell, VHTC President 21 March 2003
