The aborigine people had never seen white people until Captain James Cook landed in Botany Bay in 1770. They were shocked to see these white people in their strange clothes.  When the aborigines first saw the ships of the "First Fleet" enter Botany Bay in 1778 with so many white skinned people they thought they were the spirits of their dead ancestors (after all they were so white). In fact these were the first European settlers led by Captain Arthur Phillip. See the site for further info...

There were around 300,000 aborigines in about 250 tribal groups before the first white settlers arrived in Australia in 1776. Each group had its own territory, traditions, beliefs and language. The Aborigines have one of the oldest civilizations in the world.

Nobody is quite sure how Aborigines came to Australia around 60,000 years ago. They may have walked and sailed here from Asia.  The Aborigines were nomadic hunter-gathers. They roamed from place to place. They hunted animals using spears and boomerangs. They also gathered fruits, nuts and yams which they ate.  They all believed in the Dreamtime which is the centrepiece of aboriginal culture.

Kate Grenville - The Secret River - This book follows the story of William Thornhill, a boatman in early 1800s London. His poverty-fuelled thieving leads to deportation to Australia where his desire for land, and a home to raise his family, comes at a terrible cost to the local Aboriginal people. The humanity and tenacity of the characters and the newness of the Australian landscape make this an outstanding book.

MAP OF ICE AGE AUSTRALIA.The first Aboriginal people arrived on the north west coast of Australia between 65,000 and 40,000 years ago.  Migration to the Australian continent for humans was a difficult task. Australia is separated from Southeast Asia by a great expanse of water. During the last Ice Age, the distance was smaller because so much water was frozen in glaciers. But before 50,000 years ago humans would still have faced a voyage across fifty miles of open sea to get to Australia.
