The Eureka Stockade was a rebellion against the colonial authority of the United Kingdom in 1854, instigated by gold miners in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. It resulted in the Battle of the Eureka Stockade, which was fought between miners and the British Coloniel Forces of Australia on 3 December 1854 at Eureka Lead and named for the stockade structure built by miners during the conflict. The rebellion resulted in the deaths of at least 27 people, the majority of whom were rebels.
The rebellion was the culmination of a period of civil disobedience in the Ballarat region during the Victorian gold rush with miners objecting to the expense of a miner's licence, taxation via the licence without representation, and the actions of the government, the police and military. The local rebellion grew from a Ballarat Reform League movement and culminated in the erection by the rebels of a crude battlement and a swift and deadly siege by colonial forces.
