this is linked to contact history as the first records of European mariners sailing into 'Australian' waters occurs around 1606, and includes their observations of the land known as Terra Australias incognita (unknown southern land).

I thought as a born and bred Portsmouth chap I thought I would list the first fleet to Australia that left Portsmouth, England in 1787. Portsmouth is famous for its many famous events and people.

Who Were the First Australians, and How Many Were There? - ScienceNOW | contact history | Scoop.it

Some 40,000 to 50,000 years ago, a band of intrepid Southeast Asians became the first humans to reach Australia, and without a single glance at a GPS unit. Now new research suggests that perhaps 3000 people—many more than previously thought—made that foray into the unknown to become the continent's founding population and the ancestors of Australia's aboriginal people.
