2014 Speaker Tim Bottoms

I am honoured to have been asked by the Friends of Myall Creek Memorial, to be today’s guest speaker. Back in 2009 I was awarded the Visiting Fellowship at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra. In order to do further research on massacres in northern NSW and across Queensland and into the Northern Territory, I drove the two and half thousand kilometres from Cairns to check out the ‘lie of the land’ and photograph massacre sites, and I paused here, at Myall Creek on my journey south.
