This engaging reference examines the history of, the search for, and the discovery of Australia, taking full account of the evidence for and the speculation surrounding possible earlier contacts by the Ancient Egyptians, Arabs, and Chinese seamen.

Covers a wide variety of topics, including * Seamen from eight nations * The recovery of storm wrecked ships * Diplomatic treaties * Priority of discovery disputes * Military and civil explorers and surveyors * Topographical features * Geographical terms and places * Rivers and river system
