About this assessment
On 11 March 2008, the Australian Heritage Council completed its assessment of the National Heritage values of the Myall Creek Massacre and Memorial Site, finding it of outstanding heritage value for the pivotal role it played in the development of the relationships between Aboriginal people and settlers. The massacre was the last time in Australia's history that the Colonial Administration intervened to ensure the laws of the colony were applied equally to Aboriginal people and settlers involved in frontier killings.
In some cases the Minister will have made amendments to such matters as boundaries, values and descriptions, before listing the place. For final listing data visit the Australian Heritage Database or the National Heritage Listing for Myall Creek.
