Ben Boyd was a Scottish colonialist and is considered Australia’s first ‘blackbirder’, who shipped South Sea Islanders to Australia in effective slavery. There is a movement to change the name to honour the original inhabitants of the land, the Thaua people.
Genoa Peak sits in the Croajingolong National Park in eastern Victoria, about 20km west of Mallacoota. These were taken just off the peak.
