Aboriginal protest in Upper Hunter Valley

Aboriginal protest in Upper Hunter Valley. Aboriginal people refuse to vacate their camp site on the village reserve in Gundy when settlers choose it as the spot on which to build St Matthews Church. The church people make use of their knowledge of Aboriginal customs. They arrange to have the body of a recently deceased Aboriginal person brought into the camp from higher up the Page River. The Gundy clan leave at once, forming a new camp to the near north. (Brayshaw, On Revisiting Gundy, 2005, 232.
