The English were hostile to most of the natives near their colonies. However, I can't seem to find any evidence as to whether or not the Aborigines partook in any battle against British colonists in Australia. Was there any MAJOR coordinated conflict between the two peoples?

Do you mean battle as in a coordinated conflict, or a battle as in any conflict? The question title/body should be synchronised to one or other meanings. – LateralFractal Oct 29 '13 at 22:31
@LateralFractal Coordinated Conflict. – Young Guilo Oct 29 '13 at 22:50
Trivial, see Lennart's complete answer by basic encyclopaedic searching. – Samuel Russell Oct 30 '13 at 0:25
@SamuelRussell The question as worded is probably covered (with some digging) in the Wikipedia article cited. But the question almost but not quite touches on a much more interesting vein of enquiry: The Australian History Wars regarding the level and nature of the conflict. – LateralFractal Oct 30 '13 at 12:28
