Victorian crime

So pretty much everyone knows the Great Train Robbery of 1855.

However, in Crighton's introduction to his book, he mentions that although known, it wasn't the only crime of that size in that time period.

What I'm trying to find out was whether there were any crimes that happened around 1849-1851 of a similar size?

Additionally, if someone was sent to Australia in the late 1830's for, say, seven years - how would they get back? Would they have to pay their own way?
