A Nest of Hornets


The massacre of the Fraser Family at Hornet Bank Station, Central Queensland, 1857. The subsequent white retribution, headed by William Fraser, the eldest son who had been away at the time, led to the decimation and dispersal of the Jiman people and some of their allies. As many as 300 may have died in retaliation for the deaths of eleven whites at Hornet’s Nest Station.
