The Final Journey To Canberra
Justice Moynihan's views shattered Eddie Mabo. However, with the support of his family, and advice from his lawyers, he soon bounced back. He decided not to appeal the findings, and was determined to proceed with the case into the final hearings of the full High Court.
Mabo made the long, thirty six hour trip south by bus from Townsville to Canberra, in May 1991; and by the thirty first of the month, the High Court hearings had concluded. The ten year legal saga was over. The Justices of the High Court retired to consider and write their judgements; no one knew exactly how long the process would take.
