The Eumerella Wars is a name given to a series of violent encounters between European settlers and aboriginal Australians in south west Victoria.[1]

Rolf Boldrewood wrote a chapter about the war in his book Old Melbourne Memories (1896).[2]

The remains of people involved in the conflict are at the Deen Maar Indigenous Protected Area.[3]
