Fighting alongside Jaga Jaga for many years was Winberrie, a much younger man. He was Wurundjeri, but his influence extended out into the country around the Goulburn River.

Despite the war in which they were engaged, he was held in high regard by the squatters for his courage in adversity. Winberrie was back on the Yarra River with his people on the morning of 11 October 1840. Major Lettsom, with fifty red-coats, surrounded their encampment on the Heidelberg Road. Winberrie was shot dead, and the remaining 500 of his people were marched at bayonet point through the streets of Melbourne and locked in the town stockade.
