"Van Dieman's land being the name given to what is now called Tasmania by white colonials who considered it uninhabited?"

vna Diemen's Land was the name given by Dutch explorer Abel Tasman who, so far as I can tell, did not set up a colony there. Whether he considered it uninhabited, whether he even met any of its inhabitants, is not clear to me from a quick scan of readily available materials.
