The Darkey Flat Massacre is a massacre of Aboriginal Australians by European settlers that supposedly took place some time between 1845 and 1853. There is no eyewitness, first-hand, or clear documentary evidence relating to the massacre and there is some doubt as to whether it actually occurred.[1]
