History of Western Australia

Western Australia has been inhabited for 40,000 years by (primarily) hunter gatherers and settlers from the Malay islands.

The first Europeans to reach Western Australia were the Portuguese, although, the territory was later claimed by the Dutch and French. Neither decided to settle.

The English were the first Europeans to settle and enforce their claims to Western Australia. During the first several decades, many of these settlers died because of a small food supply, and other challenges.

In the late 19th century and early 20th century, Western Australia saw numerous gold rushes. This helped increase economic activity. In the 1950s, Western Australia's agriculture-based society started to industrialize and this brought about even more economic output.
