 "In 1929 one of the darkest chapters in Australian industrial history was written in blood and bitterness on the Northern Coalfields of NSW … it took 15 months for the enemies to fight themselves to a standstill…"
During this dark period, 10,000 miners found themselves locked out of their Hunter Valley coalmines in a bitter industrial dispute over pay rates.

What began as an undeclared war on industrial labour ended up overpowering a government, crippling an industry and besieging a community.
This event challenged the rights of every Australian, and redefined the political and industrial landscape of a country that witnessed an event forever remembered as ‘The Great Australian Lockout’.
