Hospital Creek Massacre Site

The Hospital Creek Massacre site is located on the Goodooga Road. Many stories surround the story of the Hospital Creek Massacre. There are accounts that a white boundary rider from ‘Quantambone Station’ took an Aboriginal woman and then was attacked and killed by the native men. The whites, in retribution, rounded up the natives, chased them over the river and eventually slaughtered them at Hospital Creek.

It is said that 400 Aboriginal people were killed on that day. The Brewarrina Local Aboriginal Land Council has erected a monument at this historical site, which can be viewed at Hospital Creek, 27km’s out on the Goodooga Road.
