No matter which decade they lived in, bushrangers used the cover of the Australian bush, which was dense and therefore easy for them to hide in, to ambush travellers or people living in outlying settlements. Once the goldrushes of the 185os began, there were plenty of pickings among the coaches that carried the gold and currency between the major centres. Bushrangers in these times targetted the coaches because, even though they often had police escorts… Read More

People became bushrangers for a number of reasons: Greed. They had already had a run-in with the law, so they felt they had nothing more to lose. Revenge or anger against the lawmakers.

Bushrangers did not build shelters. They needed to hide form the authorities, so their most common shelter was in caves or under cliff overhangs in mountainous countryside.
The earliest busuhrangers were the "convict bolters", who were escaped convicts. The very first bushranger was John 'Black' Caesar, an escaped convict who was on the First Fleet, and began his bushranging activities from April 1789. Bushrangers continued to be a problem in Australia right through to the last of the major bushrangers, Ned Kelly, who was hanged in 1880.
well, it depends what you mean by "bush" and "ranger". if by bush you mean foliage and general flora, and by ranger, you mean a sort of public service official that roams the wilderness, then the answer is quite frugally, but happily.

Bushrangers did not build shelters. They usually camped out in caves and under cliff overhangs. Occasionally they might build a rough bark shelter, but usually preferred natural landforms.
The first bushrangers were escapees of the convict system. They had no where else to go besides the bush. Technically they did need to steal because they couldn't go back to where they started, asking for food. They stole horses, food from farms, they robbed banks and they robbed from the rich. Some people became bushrangers perhaps out of boredom, and some where desperate to get away from everything.
Bushrangers are common in NSW, Queensland and Victoria, but they lived all over Australia. During the gold rushes they were most common in places where their were a lot of money and gold, or along the 'money routes'.
Once an effective communication system was in place, by way of the telegraph, it was more difficult for bushrangers to take their victims by surprise. Troopers now had the advantage of being better able to track the movements of bushrangers as news of their whereabouts was conveyed between telegraph receivers. Technological advancements in modern times would make it difficult for bushrangers to carry out their ambushes. The development of the car means that it would… Read More
Bushrangers caused fear amongst the people of the goldfields, and those who had to convey the gold to the cities. They were particularly known for ambushing coaches with wealthy passengers. Essentially, they made travelling unsafe.
The first bushrangers in Australia were escaped convicts. Later on, after transportation ceased, some settlers were attracted by the concept of freedom and a life of crime with no commitments. These were often employees or family members from sheepstations and cattle stations.

Bushrangers were literally a law unto themselves. Whilst they could be banned in word alone, they could not physically be banned from anywhere. If they wished to enter a shop, they entered it - and no-one would dare to oppose them.
