Best Answer

Presuming that this question refers to the goldmining rebellion known as the Eureka Stockade, the leader was Peter Lalor. He was an Irish immigrant who initially worked on the construction of the Melbourne - Geelong railway line, but soon joined the gold rush and began mining in the Ovens Valley, and then in Ballarat. Lalor was elected to be the miners' leader and representative on 30 November 1854.
