Australia is situated between the Pacific and South Indian Ocean, to the margins of the British Empire. Its area is 7.7 million km ². The population of Australia is old, with the arrival of the Aborigines, probably from central India, at an undetermined period between 100 000 and 40 000 BC. They developed a unique way of life, and the British did not understand and decreed that the island is virgin. At the time of discovery and the landing at Botany Bay in 1770 and annexation of the east coast of Australia on behalf of the British Crown by James Cook, the Aborigines represented only some 250 000 people. Although it has been recognized and mapped by Captain Cook (he was accompanied by botanist Joseph Banks who was sympathetic to the introduction of Europeans on this island), the British showed an interest until the mid-nineteenth century and it was not until 1788 that Great Britain took possession of the island, at the future New South Wales and its Port Jackson (now Sydney). This is to show how this island which initially aroused little enthusiasm on the part of the British Crown, has shown its significant assets and was developed by the British to become the end a dominion of our time as well as Canada over the years.
