The name Australia is derived from the Latin Terra Australis a name used for putative lands in the southern hemisphere since ancient times, the Dutch adjectival form Australische was used in a Dutch book in Batavia into refer to the newly discovered lands to the south. On 12 DecemberMacquarie recommended to the Colonial Office that it be formally adopted, inthe Admiralty agreed that the continent should be known officially as Australia.
The first official published use of the term Australia came with the publication of The Australia Directory and these first inhabitants may have been ancestors of modern Indigenous Australians. The Torres Strait Islanders, ethnically Melanesian, were originally horticulturists, the northern coasts and waters of Australia were visited sporadically by fishermen from Maritime Southeast Asia.
The first recorded European sighting of the Australian mainland, and the first recorded European landfall on the Australian continent, are attributed to the Dutch. The first ship and crew to chart the Australian coast and meet with Aboriginal people was the Duyfken captained by Dutch navigator, Willem Janszoon.
He sighted the coast of Cape York Peninsula in earlythe Dutch charted the whole of the western and northern coastlines and named the island continent New Holland during the 17th century, but made no attempt at settlement. William Dampier, an English explorer and privateer, landed on the north-west coast of New Holland ininJames Cook sailed along and mapped the east coast, which he named New South Wales and claimed for Great Britain.
The first settlement led to the foundation of Sydney, and the exploration, a British settlement was established in Van Diemens Land, now known as Tasmania, inand it became a separate colony in The United Kingdom formally claimed the part of Western Australia in Separate colonies were carved from parts of New South Wales, South Australia inVictoria inthe Northern Territory was founded in when it was excised from South Australia 2. Perth — Perth is the capital and largest city of the Australian state of Western Australia.
It is the fourth-most populous city in Australia, with a population of 2. The first areas settled were on the Swan River, with the central business district. It gained city status inand was promoted to the status of a Lord Mayorality in The citys population increased substantially as a result of the Western Australian gold rushes in the late 19th century, largely as a result of emigration from the eastern colonies of Australia.
An influx of immigrants after the war, predominantly from Britain, Greece, Italy and Yugoslavia, Aboriginal people have inhabited the Perth area for 38, years, as evidenced by archaeological remains at Upper Swan.
The Noongar people occupied the southwest corner of Western Australia and lived as hunter-gatherers, the wetlands on the Swan Coastal Plain were particularly important to them, both spiritually and as a source of food. The Noongar people know the area where Perth now stands as Boorloo, Boorloo formed part of Mooro, the tribal lands of Yellagongas group, one of several based around the Swan River and known collectively as the Whadjuk.
The Whadjuk were part of a group of fourteen tribes that formed the south-west socio-linguistic block known as the Noongar. The judgment was overturned on appeal, the first documented sighting of the region was made by the Dutch Captain Willem de Vlamingh and his crew on 10 January The British colony would be officially designated Western Australia inCaptain James Stirling, aboard Parmelia, said that Perth was as beautiful as anything of this kind I had ever witnessed.
On 12 August that year, Helen Dance, wife of the captain of the ship, Sulphur. The only contemporary information on the source of the name comes from Fremantles diary entry for 12 August, Murray was born in Perth, Scotland, and was in Secretary of State for the Colonies and Member for Perthshire in the British House of Commons.
The town was named after the Scottish Perth, in Murrays honour, the racial relations between the Noongar people and the Europeans were strained due to these happenings. Because of the amount of building in and around Boorloo 3.

The Nyungar name for the area is Walyallup, Fremantle lies on a series of limestone hills known by the Nyungar people as Booyeembara, the sandplain to the east is Gardoo.
The original vegetation of the area was mainly Xanthorrhoea and eucalyptus trees, the central part of the suburb extends eastwards to include Royal Fremantle Golf Club and a suburban area south of Marmion Street and west of Carrington Street.
Fremantle is the end of the Fremantle railway line runs from Perth to Fremantle. The traditional owners of the land on which the city of Fremantle is built are the Whadjuk Noongar people who called the area Walyalup, to the local Noongar people, Fremantle is a place of ceremonies, significant cultural practices and trading. For millennia the Noongar people met there in spring and autumn to feast on fish, today, Whadjuk and other Noongars continue to gather and meet in Walyalup and at Manjaree.
The area was considered as a site for possible British settlement in and his favourable report was welcomed by the British Government, who had for some time been suspicious of French colonial intentions towards the western portion of Australia. Captain Fremantle left the colony on 25 August after providing much assistance to Stirling in setting up the colony and it was then that Stirling decided to name the port settlement Fremantle.

Joondalup — Joondalup is a regional metropolitan city within Perth, Western Australia, approximately 26 kilometres north of Perths central business district.
It acts as the urban centre in Perths outer northern suburbs. During the latter part of the s, the Metropolitan Regional Planning Authority developed the Corridor Plan for Perth which was published and adopted in The plan called for the creation of five sub-regional retail centres which would form the commercial and economic focus of each node, the Corridor Plan was not endorsed by Parliament until This Plan was amended as new centres were required, a review of the Corridor Plan in found that the sub-regional centres had failed to adequately compete against the regional shopping centres in the middle-distance suburbs.
The city is named after Lake Joondalup, the name Joondalup is a Noongar Aboriginal word, first recorded in and possibly meaning either place of whiteness or glistening, or place of a creature that can only move backwards.
Joondalup as a centre has no statutory boundaries, Joondalup contains a fairly youthful population, with an age of Joondalup is governed by the City of Joondalup local government area, untilthe area was entirely governed by the neighbouring City of Wanneroo. Joondalups central business district, centred on Grand Boulevard, is largely a shopping and retail area lined with townhouses, lakeside Joondalup Shopping City is located adjacent to the Joondalup railway station and backs onto Grand Boulevard.
Joondalup is home to the Joondalup Festival, an event that takes place in the CBD featuring markets, music, fashion, street arts, fairground rides. The festival is free-of-charge and attracts people from all over the Perth metropolitan area, the city has a number of parks including Central Park and Neil Hawkins Park in the Yellagonga Regional Park.

These wetlands provide refuge for migratory birds, Joondalups coastal front consists of Burns Beach in the north and Beaumaris Beach in Ocean Reef, running onto the Ocean Reef Boat Harbour in the south. Nothing as dramatic as cancer, just a check on thyroid function, iron levels, especially as I have had a few faintness attacks. My doc said it was all good though, my system runs like a well tuned diesel engine, slow and solid. I guess the onset of the menopause does have some effects on me — moodswings and the rest, just ask Roddy!
I contacted my old school, Shenton and two other schools, Morley and Churchlands for relief work and ended up being rather busy, working full-time some weeks as an English teacher as well as Science, HE, Hass social subjects and especially as a PE and Dance teacher! The relief-coordinator in Morley said that most relief teachers are suddenly busy when they are offered PE whereas I looked sturdy enough to take it.
Roddy bought me a whistle and I got to grips with the outdoor situation on the oval and the echoey gymnasium. Quite a different teaching experience and some days were challenging. One day I was supposed to run cricket. Might as well have been written in Greek. Another day I morphed into a volleyball coach. Watching Jane play over the years proved to be useful.
I even knew what a libero was! Being relief could be disheartening if you let it. You are a nobody to them; you have no history in the school and no status, so some kids, especially the younger ones, are delighted when they see you. Well I was not going to resign myself to that fate. Once you have lost a class, the lesson, or even the day, is sheer hell and chances are that you will have them again another day, so foresight is essential.
In the end I decided to view difficult classes as a sport in itself. I was the toughest relief teacher I could be, sussed out who the ringleaders were, dealt with them and made sure they all worked. It paid off and they did respect me so that I really enjoyed my stint, made some new friends and had good relationships with the kids.
I particularly enjoyed waltzing in and out at the end of the day without prep or marking and found that my social skills underwent further training in new staffroom situations. So how did we spend our time here apart from medical and work? Jane and Karina came back from Ukraine so we have spent some time together and Jane and I had some valuable mother-daughter time. Jane is doing very well in her job and feels at home here.
She is working on a plan B to make her future in Oz happen as her working holiday visa runs out in February but more to that when it has hatched. Jane and Karina are now our neighbours as their new place backs onto Moondine Drive — just that we are not currently there.

I managed to be at a retirement do at Shenton; we packed in the Rhein Donau Club with Tim, Kate, Jessica and Milton and their assorted kids and neighbours, and an Abba Tribute band in Rockingham with Marion and her sister. It was the worst Abba Tribute band ever but we had a fun night.
They forgot lyrics for an Abba purist like me a no noplayed too much on the apparent wife swap fantasy, had men suck lollipops from between their inflated boobs and generally got pissed, dancing on tables and the bar as the night went on. He does have good taste — mostly. Legend has it that blood used to run down the gutter outside after a particularly good night there. We had a more sedate night, went for a meal and the following day visited the Parliament in session as well as a criminal trial in the District Court.
This was fascinating and infuriating in equal measures, because the guy, an alleged child molesting uncle, smirked throughout the proceedings. Subsequently we attended the trial a few times, Roddy more often than me. The incidents happened 20 years ago when the girl was between years old, so clearly it was quite impossible to have clear evidence.
