Before there was any external influence, there were many indigenous people who had inhabited Australia. The population of the people was over 750,000, roughly.

What actually brought these Australians to the historical limelight was its discovery by explorers, and also, cultural-artistic developments. They were a part of the ancient populations that existed for over six centuries.
