Benjamin Franklin claimed “Nothing in life is certain except death and taxes” and nothing could have been truer at the pinnacle of the 1850s Victorian Gold Rush for those who took part in the Eureka Stockade. Defying the payment of taxes, it symbolised an early moment of Aussies sticking it to the man and winning the people’s affection over tyranny.
