They Came to Murramarang. A History of Murramarang, Kioloa and Bawley Point

Alastair Greig, Suzanne A. Feary

    Research output: Book/ReportEdited Bookpeer-review


    They Came to Murramarang was first published in 1994, providing the New  South  Wales South Coast villages of Bawley Point, Kioloa and the surrounding  area with an authoritative history from colonial settlement through to the contemporary era. In considering another reprint, two decades after its initial release, the author Bruce Hamon was aware that the region has experienced considerable development since the early 1990s and it is appropriate to consider these changes. Bruce was also aware of research conducted into particular historical episodes associated with the region since the original publication, which augments his account presented in They Came to Murramarang. Furthermore, he felt that the original text provided only a brief glimpse into the rich story of the Indigenous custodians of the country, even though the book presented a fascinating account of early colonial frontier conflict. In incorporating these changes and discoveries, Bruce sought assistance from sociologist Dr Alastair Greig, along with that of Dr Sue Feary, an archaeologist with extensive knowledge of Indigenous history and environmental policy in the region.
