Blood on the Southern Cross

Clever use of fantastic special sound and lighting effects stirs the imagination. The thunder of galloping horses on a licence hunt, the roar of fire as the Eureka Hotel blazes, the murmur of 500 diggers as they swear allegiance to their flag and the fearful clamour of that fateful battle at the Stockadeon in the Ballarat goldfields tells the story of the Eureka Rebellion.
