    Reasons included the inhospitable nature of much of the continent, and the barrier of the Blue Mountains to the west of Sydney. Papua New Guinea, formerly an Australian external territory, gained its independence in While the actual date of original exploration in Australia is unknown, there is evidence of exploration by William Dampier in[23] and the First Fleet arrived ineighteen years after Lt.

Very little is known of the early Aboriginal settlers, but it is becoming clear that they were among the earliest people in the world to manufacture polished stone tools and to cremate their dead. With little idea of what he could expect from the mysterious and distant land, Phillip had great difficulty assembling the fleet that was to make the journey.

    Steinberg retired to the US. To this day it is a monarchy: the Queen of Australia is also the Queen of England. Establishing themselves first at Sevenhillin South Australia inthe Jesuits were the first religious order of priests to enter and establish houses in South Australia, Victoria, Queensland and the Northern Territory —where they established schools and missions. This and the many subsequent gold finds attracted a flood of migrants. It is their culture, their traditions and their people who suffered the consequences of colonisation, being forced to change themselves to fit the modern world. The colony was on the verge of outright starvation for several years, and the marines sent to keep order were not up to the task.

Some of the Irish convicts had been Transported to Australia for political crimes or social rebellion in Ireland, so the authorities were suspicious of the minority religion for the first three decades of settlement. The British actions constituted "invasion" as it was defined in international law even during the nineteenth century, argues Rowan Nicholson in the central meaning of the word "invasion" in international law was the entry by force by one sovereign into the territory of another sovereign.

The Australian Colonies Government Act [] was a landmark development which granted representative constitutions to New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania and the colonies enthusiastically set about writing constitutions which produced democratically progressive parliaments—though the constitutions generally maintained the role of the colonial upper houses as representative of social and economic "interests" and all established constitutional monarchies with the British monarch as the symbolic head of state.
