I haven't heard of any Aboriginal legends regarding alien visitations, but I haven't looked for these either. I do know there are many fine examples of rock paintings, & I heard that some recently-discovered ones were found in the Hunter Valley [near Sydney]. I could probably send you some links, though you might do better at www.google.com.au
UFO sightings abound in Australia. I've had my own major experience on the Hay Plains, near Narrandera [NSW], & a couple of minor sightings in Sydney.
This is a very US-centred site. I would recommend that you subscribe to a magazine that's published every 2 months, it's international but based in Oz. Check it out at www.nexusmagazine.com - & check out some of the articles while you're there.
Sorry I can't be of more help, Be sure & check out La Perouse when you're in Sydney, also the various Aboriginal centres in Redfern too.

A couple of years ago I saw about ten or twelve orange points of light appear individually over the space of about an hour over Perth, Western Australia. I was standing in my garden just before midnight one night, and gradually became aware of a tiny orange point slowly moving from southeast to northwest across the sky like a satellite. Instead of continuing in a straight line though (as would a satellite), as each one arrived around the constellation of Orion, it would slow down, waver, then get fainter and disappear, as if it was moving up and away from me. Weird stuff. My wife witnessed this but was unphased as it wasn't very spectacular, if unexplained. I even grabbed my video camera and filmed it on night shot at 110x magnification, though all I got was one of those crappy blurred wavery "UFO" home movies. I never found out what they were, though I highly doubt alien spacecraft! Much more likely to be weather balloons, though why someone would release them one after the other at nearly midnight I have no idea.

The Bradshaw Paintings are incredibly sophisticated, as you will see from the 32 pictures in the Paintings Section, yet they are not recent creations but originate from an unknown past period which some suggest could have been 50,000 years ago. This art form was first recorded by Joseph Bradshaw in 1891, when he was lost on an Kimberley expedition in the north-west of Australia. They predate the present Aborigines.

The first link is a classic.
I also know of "stuff" re the second link and Perth, so if you are coming to Perth I *may* be able to point you somewhere re ancient civilisations.
