A history of squatters with James McCourt

Lincoln Sheep Homeward Laddie

This event is now in the past.

What were the motives and expectations of the early squatters of the Darling Downs and how successful were they in their ventures in the region? Join James McCourt as he examines the circumstances which led Patrick Leslie to move stock up to this area and the group of squatters who followed him to take up runs on the Darling Downs.

James McCourt has degrees in history and law and has carried out research into the earliest squatters on the Darling Downs in libraries both in England and in Australia.
