How and why was Australia founded?

Australia was originally populated by aborigins. Archaeological examinations have stated that this indigenous population inhabited Australia at least 40.000 years before the continent was colonized. During the time of the great explorations, from the 17th century onwards, several European countries called into requisition different parts of the country. You can read about the history of Australia and the force and power of colonialism in books as well as articles in the library - there is lots of information to find, both thorough and brief!
