Case 45

Port Arthur

*** Warning: This case involves a child victim ***

On April 28 1996, a lone gunman entered the Broad Arrow Café in Tasmania’s historic Port Arthur site and opened fire. By the end of his shooting spree, 35 lives had been lost and 24 others were injured, including two young children. 

The Port Arthur Massacre was the worst mass murder in Australian history and one of the world’s deadliest shootings ever committed by a single individual. What drove the perpetrator, 28-year-old Martin Bryant, to carry out such a vile and extreme act?
