1966 – Walk Off at Wave Hill

Dissatisfied with poor working conditions, unfair treatment and unequal pay conditions, 200 Aboriginal stockmen, house-servants, and their families walk off the job at Wave Hill Station, Northern Territory. The strike protested the poor work and pay conditions and was part of a widespread campaign begun by workers on Brunette Downs Station and supported by non-Indigenous people.
