Australia is a multicultural country and continent, with a rich history. The indigenous people of Australia are thought to have migrated from Southeast Asia, over 40,000 years ago. The first European settlers were of Dutch descent and landed in Australia in the early 17th Century. In the 19th Century, British settlement overtook the Dutch colonies and the entire country became a British dependency.
