YARRALUMLA'S BLACKFELLOW GHOST


I like these... another mention of  Yarralumla's ghost. It's a tale of jewel theft, bushrangers, a murdered Aboriginal man and the location of a treasure under a Deodar tree in front of Canberra's Yarralumla. The story is from one of John Gales works. Gale was a Canberra pioneer journalist and publisher who was commonly referred to as the Father of Canberra.

 The Argus - 20 January 1945



There's another more detailed clipping here.
