A glance into History
For centuries, Australia was the home to indigenous Australians, who are carrying one of oldest culture and ethics among all the natives around the world, evidence suggests that they have lived more than 50,000 years.
The first time Australia has been seen was by Spanish sailors who just passed by it, but in 1606 it was Dutch’s who explored the country (in “Cape York Peninsula” area) for the first time and named it “New Holland”. The country wasn’t so much interesting for the Dutch people as they thought it was a far and dry land so nobody travel to it.
In 1770, Capitan James Cook and his crew from the Britain Royal Navy mapped the east coast and named it “New South Wales”, and claimed it for Great Britain.
On 11th January 1788, Capitan Arthur Phillip along with 11 Great Britain’s ships and 1350 people under his supervision landed in the New South Wales and became the governor of the country.
In 1900, Queen Victoria granted the country its political independence and on 1st January 1901 Australia became independence country since then Australia is celebrating its independence day every year on this very same date.
Australian Federation initially made Melbourne their temporary capital and started looking for a new site. Some say the reason to choose the new capital city was that of a compromise to be made between opponents cities: Sydney and Melbourne, in others opinion they believe because both Sydney and Melbourne were coastal cities and there were possibilities of sea-related disasters so they were looking for an inland location in New South Wales. At the end, Canberra site got a green flag and construction commenced in 1913 and the location officially named Canberra. Canberra is one of the rare cities in Australia which is entirely planned.
