They are utterly unacquainted with gold, silver, tin, iron, lead and copper, nor do they know anything” Jan Carstensz, Commander of the Dutch ship Arnhem. Such was often the view of early European explorers as they skirted the coast of what was then just called the South Land. I wonder what they would say if they returned today. The explorer Ernest Giles wrote of the early navigators: This was clearly evidenced by the fact that Torres discovered the straits named after him but for a long time afterward no other nation was aware that Australia and New Guinea were in fact separate.
Maps made in by the Chinese Admiral Cheng Ho Zheng He are reported to show part of the west coast of Australia but records that far back are unable to confirm any landings. The Chinese are known to have travelled widely through out the Indian Ocean and had invented the stern rudder and compass that would have allowed them to travel great distances across the sea. It is thought by some historians that the Chinese may have discovered America well before the Europeans but it seems unlikely that proof will ever be found as all the logs of the Star Fleet were deliberately destroyed when China embarked on a course of isolationism.
There is a map that is said to be a copy of the Cheng Ho map and if it turns out to be genuine it will leave no doubt that the Chinese discovered America 70 years before Columbus. There is evidence that the Portuguese visited and mapped the Australian coast as early as Two Portuguese canons were found on Cannonade Island and were dated no later than A map, known as the Dauphin map made in is thought to be a composite of maps made by Mendoca in and Sequeria in

The overall sequence is generally considered to be a granulite gneiss, which has undergone multiple deformations and multiple metamorphic episodes. The protolith age of the Narryer Gneiss Terrane is variable, but generally considered to be in excess of 3. Given the detrital nature of the rock unit, the zircons are sourced from pre-existing rocks which were then weathered and the resultant sediment deposited as sedimentary rock.
Additionally, oxygen isotopic ratios in the zircons provide evidence for the presence of liquid water on the surface, if not a water ocean;  also contrasting with earlier ideas on Earth’s history.

History of Perth, Western Australia The area of Perth contains the Whadjuk people , who are one of several groups in south-western Western Australia which make up the Noongar people. Indigenous Australians have inhabited the Perth area for 38, years, as evidenced by archaeological remains at Upper Swan. The Noongar people occupied the southwest corner of Western Australia and lived as hunter-gatherers.
The wetlands on the Swan Coastal Plain were particularly important to them, both spiritually featuring in local mythology and as a source of food. Boorloo formed part of the territory of the Mooro , a Noongar clan, which at the time of British settlement had Yellagonga as their leader. The Whadjuk themselves were one of a larger group of fourteen tribes that formed the south-west socio-linguistic block known as the Noongar meaning “the people” in their language , also sometimes called the Bibbulmun.
Although the Colony of New South Wales had established a convict-supported settlement at King George’s Sound later Albany on the south coast of Western Australia in in response to rumours that the area would be annexed by France, Perth was the first full-scale settlement by Europeans in the western third of the continent. The British colony would be officially designated Western Australia in but was known informally for many years as the Swan River Colony after the area’s major watercourse.
Captain James Stirling, aboard Parmelia , said that Perth was “as beautiful as anything of this kind I had ever witnessed”.

Friday, 29 June 1: But this is beginning to change and part of the reason, it seems, is because word is spreading of a mysterious painting of an old sailing ship on a rock face some km inland from the West Australian coast. The Dreamtime art site where this painting has been found is at Walga Rock, 47km west of Cue in the Murchison Goldfields. There is one main gallery at Walga – known to local Aborigines as Wolgarna Rock or Walganna Rock – and several other lesser-known art areas are scattered around the 2km-long monolith.
The whole area here continues to have cultural and spiritual significance to the local Aboriginal people, now mostly based in Cue. The Walga Gallery, dated with radio-carbon tests by archaeologists to about 10, years old, has extensive paintings of snakes, emus, kangaroos, footprints, boomerangs and hand motifs. Some of the deep red ochre colours used in the paintings come from the huge Wilgie Mia ochre mine to the north, while the white clay tones come from nearby breakaways.
Both finger painting as well as “paint” applied with the flattened end of a twig – an aboriginal bush paint brush – have been used at this quite extensive art site. Clearly, though, the most fascinating aspect to most historians, researchers and rock visitors is the intriguing painting in white ochre of a sailing ship, complete with masts, rigging and portholes, about 2m high at the north-eastern end of the main gallery.
