Australia's History

Over 60,000 years ago, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of Australia began to occupy the continent. Captain James Cook declared the territory British in 1770. The colony of New South Wales was founded in 1788, when the first fleet of British ships arrived in Sydney Cove. As additional colonies were founded over time, the Commonwealth of Australia was formed in 1901. Australia took part in both World Wars and experienced substantial social and economic change following each conflict. Australia is a constitutional monarchy in the modern era, with a robust economy, a varied population, and a vibrant culture.
