George Lacy, Capture of bushrangers at night by gold police, c. 1852. Black Douglas's headquarters were three miles from the Alma goldfield near Maryborough, and his gang's method was to rob the diggers' empty tents during the day and the shops at night. He and his gang were captured when the diggers, fed up with the thieving, surrounded their tents and burnt them to the ground. Douglas was wounded, overpowered, and carted to Maryborough with an escort of more than 200 miners.
Stringybark Creek is a small creek in the Wombat Ranges, Victoria, Australia. It is famous as the place where bushranger Ned Kelly, his brother Dan Kelly, and friends Joe Byrne and Steve Hart killed three policemen on 26 October 1878. A memorial stone has been put in the picnic area, and a tree at the site of the shootings, the Kelly Tree, has a small copy of Ned Kelly's helmet attached to it.
