Description:

The William Buckley story is a fascinating tale of survival against all odds and symbolises living in harmony with Koories. The Australian colloquialism ‘Buckleys hope’ refers to a scant chance of succeeding, the’one-in-a-million’  chance Buckley had of surviving in the Victorian wilderness. The young convict escaped from custody in 1803 at Sorrento, Victoria, Australia. Remarkably, for the next three decades, Buckley wandered extensively throughout the region, living much of the time with local Aborigines. Most of his years on the run were spent around what is now Geelong, through the Otway Ranges and along the coast. Buckley was eventually discovered and given a pardon. He was killed in a traffic accident in Hobart in 1856. Some places around the Geelong region now carry Buckley’s name, including Buckley Falls on the Barwon River and a small settlement about 30km out of Geelong.
