The first recorded European sighting of the Australian mainland, and the first recorded European landfall on the Australian continent (in 1606), are attributed to the Dutch. The first ship and crew to chart the Australian coast and meet with Aboriginal people was the Duyfken captained by Dutch navigator, Willem Janszoon. Australians regard the defeat of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZACs) at Gallipoli as the birth of the nation - its first major military action. The Kokoda Track campaign is regarded by many as an analogous nation-defining event during World War I. .

Text 9. The First Australians. There were people in Australia long before Europeans 'discovered' the continent in the 1600s. The Aborigines arrived there about 12,000years before from Southeast Asia.

Other Aboriginal communities receive large royalty payments from mining companies. Bauxite, a chief source of aluminum, is bountiful in Arnhem Land.
The first Australians and the British, the most powerful Empire in history, come face to face in Sydney on January 26, 1788. Their differences are immense but apprehension quickly turns to curiosity. Friendships form, some between powerful men such as Governor Arthur Phillip and the Aboriginal Bennelong. But by the time this pair leave for London three years later, relations between the two races have soured. The bloodshed worsens as settlers spread out across the land.

Learn the facts and hear stories from Indigenous Australians. Ruth was 6 months old when she first arrived at Cherbourg. Times were tough; it was during the Depression, and Ruth’s mother had gone to Cherbourg seeking help for her ageing parents. But once she arrived at the mission, Ruth's mum was prevented from leaving. What was intended as a temporary visit became years of separation and control. People would say it was for your own good, but my own good was to stay with my mum, says Ruth. At first Ruth was allowed to stay with her mum in the women’s dormitory.
