The Go-Between: William Murrungurk Buckley

Jan 'Yarn' Wositzky performs the amazing story of escaped convict William Buckley (1780 – 1856). This show tells the story of the first attempted white settlement on Port Phillip (1803), of the Wathaurong people of the Geelong with whom Buckley lived for 32 years as Murrungurk, and then of Melbourne’s beginning (1835-7) – where Buckley became the go-between, dealing with John Batman and his attempts to buy the land off the Wurundjeri people, and the other colonists such as John Fawkner.
