Eagle Point is a small town in Victoria, Australia within the Shire of East Gippsland on the Gippsland lakes, mostly on Lake King. It is known for its bushland and tourism. The top of the red limestone cliff by the Mitchell River offers unparalleled vista of the East Gippsland low country and Mitchell_River_silt_jetties, stretching out for miles.
Eagle Point is a place associated with the Bushy Park massacres of local Gunai Aboriginal people. 1840-41, Angus McMillan and his men killed an unknown number of Gunai people in skirmishes during “the defence of Bushy Park”. Afterwards, in the mid to late 1840s, Eagle Point was the headquarters for the Border Police under Commissioner Tyers. This force in conjunction with the Native Police force based at nearby Boisdale conducted regular punitive raids upon Gunai camps across the region.
