THE FRIENDS OF MULTUGGERAH & THE BATTLE OF MEEWAH (ONE TREE HILL) 

THE BATTLE OF MEEWAH (ONE TREE HILL)

ANNUAL COMMEMORATION

Remembering

Each year the Social Justice Commission welcomes all to gather with local community members to learn more about the life and times of Multuggerah, an Aboriginal warrior who led a resistance campaign on the Darling Downs and in the Lockyer Valley in the 1840s. A historic event which has been labelled the “Battle of One Tree Hill” took place on the 12th and 13th September 1843. This years  event featured the book launch of Dr Ray Kerkhove & Frank Uhr's ' The Battle of One Tree Hill', a traditional Aboriginal Healing ceremony alongside key note speakers sharing the history and significance of the Battle of One Tree Hill.

THE FRIENDS OF MULTUGGERAH GROUP

Tackling the Issue

The Friends of Multuggerah is a community based group established to celebrate the endurance and resilience of local Aboriginal people and culture.

We will work together to gain a better understanding and appreciation of the truth of our shared history. 

We will work to promote unity, understanding and a respect for the country that we share together.

McCarthy, Copland and a good chunk of Toowoomba lobbied for years that the new road be called the Multuggerah Way.Their hopes were high...

Multuggerah was given a viaduct – a spectacular piece of engineering... a stretch of road designed to save the town from a few thousand trucks a day honours the memory of a warrior who set out to stop the traffic once and for all under One Tree Hill.
