Buckland RiotsPrint Page
Memorial to the Riot in the Buckland Valley when thousands of Chinese miners were attacked and driven from the goldfields.
This significant race riot has been compared to the Eureka Stockade uprising in size and intensity. Over 750 miner’s tents were destroyed, stores belonging to the Chinese were burnt down and looted and the newly erected Chinese Temple “Joss House” was reduced to ashes. Many details of this event are still debated as court records have mysteriously disappeared from the Beechworth Court House.
