History of Australia (1788–1850)

The history of Australia from 1788 to 1850 covers the early colonial period of Australia's history, from the arrival in 1788 of the First Fleet of British ships at Gadi, on the land of the Eora Nation, who established the penal colony of Sydney, the scientific exploration of the continent and later, the establishment of other Australian colonies. European colonisation created a new dominant society in Australia in place of the pre-existing population of Indigenous Peoples through warfare and cultural suppression.
