Note: The Australian Frontier Conflicts website attempts to document conflicts between colonists and First Nations people. The site records conflicts, including wars, that may have involved massacres, even where there were no recorded deaths or injuries such as on 26 June 1860 at Attack Creek (Goaranalki), Stuart Highway, 74 kms north of Tennant Creek, Northern Territory. In this conflict, Warramunga warriors attacked explorer John McDouall Stuart and party and forced them to turn back. No known deaths or injuries were recorded.
