‘The Bibbenluke Estate and The Robertson Land Acts, 1861–1884: “One of the finest properties in New South Wales (if not the best)”‘

Congratulations to AHA member Barbara Dawson on the publication of her book, which tells of the battle for land on the huge estate in the southern Monaro after the introduction of John Robertson’s Land Reform Acts in 1862. It examines the methods offered by the Acts to procure or defend the land, and follows the successes and failures of the main players. See Events, for details of the book launch on Saturday 12 November 2016.
