What happened at Lambing Flat?
The Lambing Flat riots, or Lambing Flat massacre, were a series of violent anti-Chinese demonstrations in the Burrangong region goldfields in New South Wales, Australia in 1860-1861. There were riots at Spring Creek, Stoney Creek, Back Creek, Wombat, Blackguard Gully, Tipperary Gully, and Lambing Flat (now Young, NSW). The Lambing Flat riots began with a major anti-Chinese riot in July 1860 on the goldfields of Lambing Flat (now Young) in central New South Wales. The riots involved violent attacks on the Chinese mining camps and plundering their tents and property. Any Chinese men who we captured had their queues cut off - these were their long plaits, and without them, the Chinese felt they were dishonourable - while some Chinese were actually scalped completely. Around 250 Chinese miners were seriously injured. Six anti-Chinese riots occurred at the Lambing Flat camps over a ten-month period.
