Governor Macquarie's proclamation

Governor Lachlan Macquarie’s proclamation ends the ban on settlers associating with the Darug. Koori people begin to gather at properties of the settlers known to be friendly or safe, such as John Macarthur’s at Parramatta and Camden. He orders grants of land and seed “for wheat, maize, potatoes,” to Aborigines “as they are inclined to become regular settlers.”
