Australian Records

People first started arriving in Australia about 50,000 years ago when the ancestors of the Aborigines migrated to the continent. There were perhaps as many as 750,000 of them living off the land in the days when Europeans first heard rumours of a great landmass in the southern oceans. Exploration and settlement of Australia began in the early 17th century and the country has been changing ever since. Made up of six original colonies, it became the Commonwealth of Australia in 1901. for more click here
