Wiradjuri led by Windradyne[1] is a custom civilisation adapted from LastSword's Australia (Windradyne) by SeroSedSerio and Miles5280s.

This mod requires Brave New World or Gods and Kings.



The Wiradjuri were and are the largest aborginal nation in modern NSW occupying much of the central western plains, including areas around the major rivers of the Kalari (Lachlan), Murrumbidjeri (Murrumbidgee), and Wambool (Macquarie). In the late 18th century during the colonisation of Australia by the British, Wiradjuri traditional land quickly became the subject of conflict due to high farming potential and proximity to Sydney. The following years of conflict, land dispossession, and the kidnapping of children did much to damage Wiradjuri culture and identity but thankfully failed to kill it, with many recent initiatives to preserve Wiradjuri customs and language proving successful.


Windradyne was born sometime around 1800 and lived in the upper Macquarie river region. He was a key leader in the ‘Bathurst Wars’, a series of conflicts in 1824 resulting from disagreements, misunderstandings, and further wants of revenge between the Wiradjuri and the encroaching settlers. The conflicts caused martial law in the region for about 4 months, during which a reward for Windradyne’s capture was offered. After martial law was lifted on the 11th of December 1824, Windradyne, leading a group of Wiradjuri, attended the governor’s annual feast on the 28th with the word ‘Peace’ written in his hat. This officially ended the Bathurst Wars with a death toll of about 100 Wiradjuri (said to include some of Windradyne’s family) and 20 British deaths, though many further conflicts did occur between colonists and Aboriginal nations for many years to come. Windradyne died on the 21st of March 1829 from injuries and infection sustained during a fight with other Wiradjuri, dying either in hospital, or having discharged himself, at his friend George Suttor’s station, where his mob (Australian English for a small group of family and friends) had set up residence and where he is now buried.

Dawn of Man[]

"Welcome, Windradyne, champion of the Wiradjuri people. The Wiradjuri are the largest Aboriginal group of modern New South Wales, dwelling in the land of the three rivers: the Wambool, the Kalari, and the Murrumbidjeri. When the white colonists came and threatened the Wiradjuri way of life, it was you, Windradyne, who led the effort to resist them in what was known as the Bathurst War. And when the time came to sue for peace with the white men, it was you who led the way once again, respected by your kin and the settlers alike.

Oh, Windradyne, great warrior and leader: your people need you once more in this neverending race to glory. Will you lead them through peace and war? Will you stand proudly against any who would oppose you? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "If you come in peace, we shall receive you in peace. Welcome to the lands of the Wiradjuri"

Introduction: "Yamandhu marang mudyi? Are you well, friend? I think we can hunt together, if you respect our way of life."

Defeat: "For so long, I have had to keep running. I have come to the edge of the land, where the water begins, and I know now that I am defeated. At least let me return to my people in death."

Defeat: "I have grown far too weary of war, with so many lives lost in acts of revenge. It is time for me to rest."



Scout plenty and early to discover many new Natural Wonders, which provide unique bonuses as well as Happiness and strong tile yields. The Barra-wi-dyany is a sturdier Archer which has the potential to cover more ground, so use them for Scouting too. The Marara's Pantheon effects give random bonuses, but the +2 Happiness in every City is useful. Liberty is recommended to secure all the Natural Wonders early.
