Springsure - Cities, Towns and Localities
First settled in 1850 the area around Springsure is rich agricultural country and dominated by the Virgin Rock which overlooks the town and is popular with locals for a day out.

Not long after the area was settled tensions rose between the white settlers and the indigenous inhabitants of the area the Kairi people. At a place called Cullin-la-ringo just north of Springsure occurred the largest recorded massacre of white people by an indigenous group in Australia's history. 19 men were killed here, it is believed as revenge for the atrocities being committed by the whites against the tribe. The early settlers had also brought in the reviled native police force who had stolen women from the tribe.

The victims were buried in a mass grave on the site, permission must be obtained from Old Rainworth Station for directions on how to get to the site to view the grave.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
