Aboriginal clans assemble

The explorer D’Urville describes a great gathering of Aboriginal clans assembled near the present central railway for a ritual payback combat over the death of Bennelong’s son Dickie one year earlier. Those taking part include clans from the Hunter River, Emu Plains, Broken Bay and Illawarra. (Vincent Smith p. 83)
