The Ballarat Reform League Inc launched a major project in 2003 to place monuments on sites across the Victorian goldfields where there were significant actions that culminated in the formation of the Ballaarat Reform League in November 1854 and in the battle at the stockade on the Eureka lead, Ballarat, on 3rd December 1854.
Seven monuments have been erected so far, at Buninyong, Chewton, Beechworth, Bendigo and three in Ballarat at: Bakery Hill, Main Road, and the Eureka Stockade Park.
The installation of monuments to commemorate the activity at each of these sites has been documented and supported by informative essays written by eminent historians:
- Beechworth (documentation in progress)
- Bendigo (documentation in progress)
This project has been generously supported by The Vera Moore Foundation.
The Ballaarat Reform League and the events of Eureka were central to the development of Australia as an independent democratic country.
There is much to honour
