When poor settlers came to the colony of Victoria during the gold rush in the 1800s, they found themselves facing a lot of difficulties in an effort to get ahead. Everyone was required to purchase a license to mine and many families couldn't afford one. There was soon a conflict between miners and the authorities over this matter, leading to the Eureka Stockade.
