The name Nullarbor translates as nothing (nullus) tree (arbor). There are, however, more than 100,000 camels roaming around. I've heard stories how Aussie camels are priced items in the Middle East as they are sought for breeding. The official story is that these camels were imported from British India and Afghanistan to use as transport while building the railroads during the 19th century. The railroad workers thought they would eventually die off, but they have flourished in the desert. Australia is the only country in the world with herds of feral camels. Go figure.

It's quite interesting that for a massive region - the size of the UK or Romania - with a permanent population of a few thousand, the Nullarbor Plain is where Deya Dova, one of my favourite Australian musicians, comes from. Check out some of her stuff:

Helo, is there some archeology in Australia, it seems the only continent with no history? No temple or pyramid... I've heard Maori etc were good sailor but there's none ancient building!

No, there is a strange lack of any ancient architecture and a tonne of desert. Uluru is the closest that we have to any ancient monument and it's basically a smooth, giant red rock in the middle of nowhere. And the Aboriginals themselves seem oddly disinterested in modern living. Any other indigenous peoples usually adapt and like modern conveniences. Aboriginals, weirdly enough, don't seem to give a f**k from what I've seen. I'm pretty positive you could take away all the cars and electricity and such and the local Abos wouldn't even notice.

They are a curious people, though. Heard a story once (no idea if factual) that the British colonists once decided to do a mock match-up of professional cricket players versus a bunch of Aboriginal tribesmen after teaching them the rules. And then they played and got a shock because the tribesmen they picked apparently had way above-average human reflexes, to the extent that they seemed to see the ball in slow-motion. These were "pure" Aboriginals, before they got interbred and genetically diluted left and right.

Like I said, no idea if factual but kind of an interesting story that I kept in mind all these years.

I found a few things

Hieroglyphs discovered in Austrailia

437A656300000578-0-image-a-6_1503449512912.jpgancient egyptian hieroglyphics in australia.jpgEgyptianwritinginAustralia1.jpg

The hieroglyphs tell the tale of early Egyptian explorers, injured and stranded, in ancient Australia. The discovery centers around a most unusual set of rock carvings found in the National Park forest of the Hunter Valley, 100 km north of Sydney.

The enigmatic carvings have been part of the local folklore of the area for nearly a century with reports of people who sighted them as far back as the early 1900's.

The site was secretly visited by families "in the know" in the 1950's and fell back into local mythology for a couple of decades until it was accidentally rediscovered by a man looking for his lost dog.

The carvings are in a rock cleft, a large block of split sandstone on a cliff-face that has created a small chasm or "chamber" of two flat stone walls facing each other that widens out from two to four meters and is covered in by a huge flat rock as a "roof" at the narrow end.

The cleft is most cave-like and only accessible by a small rock chute from above or below, well disguised from the average bush-walker.

When you first come up the rock chute and climb into the stone hallway you are immediately confronted by a number of worn carvings that are obviously ancient Egyptian symbols. These are certainly not your average Aboriginal animal carvings, but something clearly alien in the Australian bush setting.

This dates the expedition just after the reign of King Khufu (known in the Greek as "Cheops" reputed builder of the Great Pyramid) somewhere between 1779 and 2748 BC. Lord Djes-eb may have actually been one of the sons of the Pharaoh Ra Djedef, who reigned after Khufu.
The hieroglyphic text was apparently written under the instruction of a ship's captain or similar, with the corner glyph on the wall displaying the title of a high official or chief priest.

The scribe is "speaking for his Highness, the Prince, from this wretched place where we were carried by ship." The expedition's leader, as mentioned before is described in the inscriptions as the King's son, "Lord Djes-eb", who came to grief a long way from home.

"For two seasons he made his way westward, weary, but strong to the end. Always praying, joyful, and smiting insects. He, the servant of God, said God brought the insects.

Have gone around hills and deserts, in wind and rain, with no lakes at hand. He was killed while carrying the Golden Falcon Standard up front in a foreign land, crossing mountains, desert and water along the way.

He, who died before, is here laid to rest. May he have life everlasting. He is never again to stand beside the waters of the Sacred Mer". (MER meaning "love")

"The snake bit twice. Those followers of the diving Lord "KHUFU", mighty one of Lower Egypt, Lord of the Two Adzes, not all shall return. We must go forward and not look back. All the creek and river beds are dry. Our boat is damaged and tied up with rope.

Death was caused by snake. We gave egg-yolk from the medicine-chest and prayed to AMEN, the Hidden One, for he was struck twice."

"We walled in the side entrance to the chamber with stones from all around. We aligned the chamber with the Western Heavens."

There is also Black Mountain, or Kalkajaka.

From the Wiki:

There are at least four sites of religious or mythological significance on the mountain. These are the Kambi, a large rock with a cave where flying-foxes are found; Julbanu, a big grey kangaroo-shaped rock looking toward Cooktown; Birmba, a stone facing toward Helenvale where sulphur-crested cockatoos are seen; and a taboo place called Yirrmbal near the foot of the range.
It is said that the aboriginals avoid this particular area, that supernatural events occur there which even Wiki will admit in their information. It has been associated with many disappearances, strange sounds, and alien/UFO activity. Also due to its unique geographic properties, it is home to rare species that aren't found anywhere else on the continent.

Sounds very similar to Skinwalker Ranch in Utah, a place where the veil between our material reality and the next plane is very thin and occasionally crosses over.

One also has to mention up to one million of Aboriginal petroglyphs (rock engravings), distributed over an area of 88 sq km of the Burrup Peninsula, located in Western Australia. These range from small engravings of Emu tracks to very large ones representing some kind of corroboree or ceremony, Aboriginal figures climbing a ship’s mast. They depict a Tasmanian Tiger (thylacine), whales, kangaroos, emus and thousands of Aboriginal ceremonies. The number of petroglyphs is estimated to be between 500,000 and 1 million. Some claim that these petroglyphs date back as far as the last ice age. The National Trust claims that about 10,000 of them have been destroyed in the last 44 years. The issue is that this allegedly biggest and oldest collection of rock art in the world is located on the gateway to one of Australia’s biggest oil and gas operations — Woodside Petroleum’s $34 billion North West Shelf LNG joint venture along with its $15 billion Pluto LNG Project. In 2008, the Australian Government placed 90% of the remaining rock art areas on the National Heritage List. Thankfully, a recent Senate report, that had warned of damage to the rock engravings, has persuaded the WA state government to act to protect them. Campaigners are now demanding that the Australian Government include all of the undisturbed areas of the Dampier Archipelago on the World Heritage List.

The black rocks that cover Black Mountain were placed there. They are not from the area and no one is quite sure where the rocks come from. They look very much out of place when you drive past it. The Indigenous to the area say along time ago the rocks were floated there to cover something else. There are millions of them and some very big.

Also i think that because white man has not been in Australia for long that anything found gets covered up and destroyed real quick.

Some of the larger stones from the destroyed site are still sitting next to a shed in a paddock not far the the original site.

Then there is this. Thousand year old coins found in Australia.

What about the Gympie pyramid? I think it was claimed to be fake, but is it really fake? How much labor had to go in to build it?

It’s easy to take everyone’s attention away via some known archaeologist’s statement.

Here is a fake archaeology link:
"Scientific Disproof
Many of the pseudoarchaeological ideas proposed by people like Gilroy and Menzies are based on an extreme form of diffusionism or hyperdiffusionism. Hyperdiffusionism is a concept not accepted by any real archaeologist. There is no material culture that suggests that hyperdiffusionism ever occurred. If all of the worlds culture came from one source you would expect to much similar material culture in the earliest stages of cultural development. The argument most often made is that the existence of pyramids around the world is evidence enough of a common origin, but what that argument fails to acknowledged is that the pyramid was simply the most structurally sound shape to build tall monuments before the age of steal. With only stone to build, a pyramid would be the most stable way to build a tall and imposing structure. "

😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Why would people need a tall and imposing structure (or a world full of them) if the world was new? How many people were there in the original days of pyramid building?

So much at Pine Gap, lots of legends and little verifiable due to national secrets acts etc...

anyone posting here have information on Pine Gap? Especially if you worked at that facility.

Pine Gap is Australia's Area-51.
Big CIA and NSA presence. NRO: National Reconnaissance Office.
Satellite and SCALAR radar tracking for UFO traffic is the word on the street. Everyone's UFOs.
An ancient energy site is a perfect spot for these underground facilities.
Ten bucks says the Aborigines know the real skinny on this joint, a sacred spot for sure. Nodal point for Ley Lines.
Super duper classified.
Impressive geology near the town of Alice Springs. Looks like Nevada or Arizona--stunning!

You DONT want to go to PG! You will be arrested.
