Topic: The Unruly Rural Rush

Very quickly colonists moved inland - the squatters and pastoralists, followed by shepherds and stockmen.  Small towns sprung up with trades people and shop keepers to provide to the needs of the rural population.

Join us as we delve into this unruly rural rush - the next stage of colonial settlement in Australia. 

Do you have rural family in your tree? We’d love to hear your story. Check our Discussion Forum on the CARG webpage to see how you can bring the rural rush to life in our meeting.

Or contact us on

Skill level: All

Group Leads: Lorraine Luks, Kristine Newton and Sharon Shelley
