‪Controversial History‬

‪Who was Angus McMillan? He was an explorer, a pioneer pastoralist and sadly... a mass murderer. He gentleman was born in Scotland and emigrated to Australia, after economic hardship in Scotland. He arrived in NSW, Australia in 1838. In 1839, battling drought, Macalister encouraged an enthusiastic McMillan to seek new pastures and a route to the coast.He explored the Gippsland area extensively contesting Strzelecki's claim to being the first explorer. On 30 March 1861 at Bushy Park Station, Sale, McMillan married Christina MacNaughton. He was elected the first representative of the South Gippsland electorate in the Victorian Legislative Assembly in 1859. In 1861 he became president of the Caledonian Society of Victoria. With commitments in Melbourne, his renowned generosity to his countrymen together with poor investments contributed to the loss of his pastoral lands. In 1864, he accepted a government contract to establish a road between the goldfields at Crooked River and Dargo River, known as the Alpine Expedition. The view of McMillan as heroic explorer and pioneer was disrupted in the late 1970s when the historian Peter Gardner highlighted the extent of frontier conflict in Gippsland, naming McMillan as a key figure. The attack on the Brataualung camped at Warrigal Creek following the murder of Ronald Macalister in 1843 was the foremost of several incidents that resulted in the loss of Gunai Kurnai lives. The historian Don Watson named McMillan as the leader of the ‘Highland Brigade’, a group of Gaelic-speaking Scotsmen who conducted reprisals against the Gunai Kurnai. The extent of McMillan’s leadership of these conflicts has been contested although his own accounts indicate that he was involved. He died of endocarditis at Iguana Creek, Crooked River on 18 May 1865. He was buried in the Sale Cemetery, leaving his wife and two sons in an impoverished position. Situated on the corner of Foster Street and the South Gippsland Highway in the township of Sale in Victoria, a Monument stands in commemoration of the location of where one of Gippsland’s first explorers and setters, Angus McMillan, and his team, passed by in 1840.‬

‪This monument needs a companion that reports on the massacres he arranged that reduced Gunai Kurnai tribes numbers from 300 people to just 25 in 20 years. Settler monuments regard them as heroes for "finding" land for farming and pasture, whereas they had to drive the owners away with threats and murder to get it.‬
