Cape Grim is located in TasmaniaCape GrimCape Grim (Tasmania) The Cape Grim massacre was an incident on 10 February 1828 in which a group of Aboriginal Tasmanians gathering food at a beach in the north-west of Tasmania is said to have been ambushed and shot by four Van Diemen's Land Company workers, with bodies of some of the victims then thrown from a 60-metre cliff. About 30 men are thought to have been killed in the attack, which was a reprisal action for an earlier Aboriginal raid on a flock of Van Diemen's Land Company sheep, but part of an escalating spiral of violence probably triggered by the abduction and rape of Aboriginal women in the area.

  • Das Cape-Grim-Massaker fand am 10. Februar 1828 im Nordwesten von Van Diemen’s Land (heute bekannt als Tasmanien) statt. Vier Schäfer mit Musketen töteten aus dem Hinterhalt 30 Aborigines vom Clan der Pennemukeer aus Cape Grim und warfen die Leichen von 60 Meter hohen Klippen ins Meer. Der Hügel, auf dem das Massaker stattfand, wurde danach von den Schäfern Victory Hill genannt. (de)
  • La Masacre de Cape Grim tuvo lugar el 10 de febrero de 1828 en el noroeste de la Tierra de Van Diemen, hoy en día conocida como Tasmania, cuando cuatro pastores armados con mosquetes emboscaron a más de treinta aborígenes de Tasmania de la banda Pennemukeer de Cape Grim, matando a 30 y arrojando sus cuerpos al mar desde un acantilado de 60 metros de altura. Se reportó que un número no identificado de ellos logró escapar. Luego del incidente, la colina en la que ocurrió la masacre fue nombrada como Victory Hill (en español, Colina de la Victoria) por parte de los pastores. (es)
  • Masakra w Cape Grim - masakra, która miała miejsce 10 lutego 1828 roku na Tasmanii, w której z rąk czterech pasterzy uzbrojonych w broń palną zginęło ponad 30 Aborygenów; następnie ich ciała zrzucono z pobliskiego klifu do położonego 60 m niżej morza. Wzgórze, na którym doszło do masakry, zostało przez morderców nazwane Victory Hill. W 1830 roku śledztwo w tej sprawie prowadził George Augustus Robinson. (pl)

About 30 men are thought to have been killed in the attack, which was a reprisal action for an earlier Aboriginal raid on a flock of Van Diemen's Land Company sheep, but part of an escalating spiral of violence probably triggered by the abduction and rape of Aboriginal women in the area. The massacre was part of the "Black War", the period of violent conflict between British colonists and Aboriginal Australians in Tasmania from the mid-1820s to 1832. News of the Cape Grim killings did not reach Governor George Arthur for almost two years. Arthur sent George Augustus Robinson, who held an unofficial government role as an Aboriginal conciliator, to investigate the incident, and later statements from company workers, a diary entry by the wife of a ship's captain and the testimony of an Aboriginal woman provided some further information. Despite the witness statements however, detail of what took place is sketchy and Australian author Keith Windschuttle and some other historians have subsequently disputed the magnitude of the massacre or denied it occurred at all. The site of the massacre has been identified as the present-day Suicide Bay, facing the island outcrops known as the Doughboys. Because a number of tribes were in the area at the time, it is uncertain which one was involved in the clash, although historian Lyndall Ryan states that those killed were members of the Peerapper clan.
