Eureka was one of the major gold fields in Victoria and became known for a rebellion in 1854 by the local gold miners of Ballarat, Victoria. They revolted against the British colonial authority, which was enforcing rising fees for gold licences. The Battle of the Eureka Stockade lasted for less than half an hour and resulted in the deaths of at least 27 people, the majority of whom were rebels. Ref: Wiki.
