Summary
On June 15, 1862, a gang of bushrangers pulled off the largest gold robbery in Australia's history at Eugowra Rocks, just east of Forbes, NSW. The gang escaped with bank notes and 77kg of gold, worth about $10 million today. It remains Australia's largest gold robbery. James Phelps tells the full story of how Frank Gardiner, Ben Hall, John O'Meally, Johnny Gilbert, Henry Manns, Alexander Fordyce, John Bow and Dan Charters planned and executed the robbery - and what happened to all that gold.
