The Explorers To outsiders, the Australian continent was sheer enigma during these eras, and most of those in the burgeoning cities of Europe and Asia had neither care nor curiosity about its existence. Known only as Terra Australis Incognita, or “The Unknown Southern Land,” Australia conjured up images of clear, sparkling seas and white, sandy coasts, with snowy mountains and alpine valleys in between. In the 1400s, Portuguese traders made their way along Australia’s north and east coasts; their sketches, known as the Dieppe Maps, were crude but accurate clues to the vast continent.

Of course, thousands of other species swim in the oceans that encircle the continent; the Great Barrier Reef alone holds 1,500 kinds of tropical fish, as well as 4,000 different shellfish and 400 unique species of sponges. Larger animals you’ll see around the beaches are fluffy, rounded rockhopper penguins, which often congregate along the rugged outcrops of the south. Royal penguins are the main inhabitants of far-flung Macquarie Island, while fairy penguins march in world-famous nightly processions on Phillip Island, offshore of southern Victoria.

Over the following century, more penal colonies were set up all around the continent’s edges, with settlements established at Moreton Bay, near modern-day Brisbane, in 1824; at Albany, Western Australia, in 1827; and at Port Arthur, Tasmania, in 1830. The Settlers Besides the authorities, guards, their families, Asian migrants, and the local Aboriginal tribes, there were few others to fill the country but convicts. Prisoners with good behavior received conditional pardons, which meant they were free but couldn’t leave the colony.
