Blackwood One-Place Study


Click here to visit website


I am the Historian for the Blackwood & District Historical and have written three books (see below) on the history of the gold-mining town of Blackwood in Victoria, Australia.

I am currently nearly completed over 30 years’ research into the further history and pioneers of Blackwood, which is now over 600 pages.

I am happy to answer questions on people who once lived in Blackwood.
