About this event

Research Reveals

Bogimbah Creek Mission: The First Aboriginal Experiment. Book launch by Dr Fiona Foley, 2020 Monica Clare Research Fellow.

As the Inaugural Monica Clare Research Fellow, Dr Foley’s research project, Bogimbah Creek Mission: the First Aboriginal Experiment retells a significant yet forgotten aspect of Queensland’s history. From 1897 to 1904, Archibald Meston, first Protector of Aboriginals in Southern Queensland, removed 51 Badtjala people from Maryborough to Fraser Island to set up the Bogimbah Creek Mission as an experiment in segregation.

Dr Foley’s book of the same name, Bogimbah Creek Mission: the First Aboriginal Experiment, will be launched at the event by Associate Professor Sandra Phillips.

The book will be available for purchase on the night and copies will be signed by Fiona.
