Murder Mystery in The Wonnangatta Valley

Murder Mystery in The Wonnangatta Valley

The Theme is who killed who and why.
The Wonnangatta murders occurred in late 1917 and 1918, in the remote Wonnangatta Valley. The victims were Jim Barclay, the manager of Wonnangatta Station,[1] and John Bamford, a cook and general hand. Barclay was a well-respected and much-liked bushman, while Bamford was regarded with suspicion, and was known to be easily roused into violent tempers. The case has never been solved.
