1843 — Jagera people, led by Multuggerah, block supply routes to the Darling Downs. This leads to a violent confrontation in the Lockyer Valley between squatters and Aborigines known as the Battle of One Tree Hill where the squatters are defeated.
This sketch depicts an attack by squatters on an Aboriginal camp, in retaliation for the Battle at One Tree Hill in 1843.
