When Abel Tasman visits Austalia in 1644 he names it New Holland. It is then a pristine country with beautiful coastal forests and unique animal species. Remarkable animals are the Lyrebird that can imitate sounds and the kangeroo. The aboriginals, the original inhabitants, have been living there for more than 65,000 years. In 1770 James Cook claims the eastern coast and names it New South Wales where the British establish a penal colony. Today, the continent has been largely destroyed by fire and is led by an ignorant class of British descendants.
