Summary
"When negotiating the terms of self-government in the Australian colonies, British officials considered the extent to which the management of Aboriginal peoples could be safely placed in local hands. Despite concerns that the new constitutions would do little to protect Aboriginal rights and interests, Britain eventually handed over full control to colonial governments, including processes for securing outstanding frontier lands for settlement. Van Diemen's Land, however, was unique amongst the Australian colonies in that the dispossession of Aboriginal peoples had already taken place entirely within the period of direct British rule."
