Thought I would share with you an interesting Australian secret that even most Australians have not heard about.

Although the Australian government refuses to acknowledge anything different other than the history they have been lead to believe about British explorer Captain Cook and his expedition being the first recorded Europeans to have encountered the land, a very different history seems to refute this erroneous tale.

Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic inscriptions, statues, coins, pyramids and many other amazing discoveries have been found all around Australia over the years, and continue to do so.

Some of the discoveries found include:

An unusual set of rock carvings of 250 hieroglyphs telling the tale of early Egyptian explorers, injured and stranded, in ancient Australia.

An Egyptian sundisc was discovered in 1950 carved into a cliff. The carving featured the outline of a chariot, showing one of its wheels.

In 1965 a cache of hand forged Egyptian bronze, copper and iron tools plus pottery and coins dating back more than 2000 years were found.

A scarab beetle carved from onyx was dug up near the Neapean River outside Penrith (NSW). Also at Penrith a 50 foot stepped pyramid exists.

An Amber-glass obelisk-shaped pin, inscribed with Egyptian characters found in a field by John Whitehouse in 1983. It is said to be 5000 years old.

Toowoomba: A group of seventeen granite stones were found with Phoenecian inscriptians. One had been translated to read "Guard the shrine of Yahweh¼s message" and "Gods of Gods". Another inscription reads, "This is a place of worship or Ra" and "Assemble here to worship the sun." (Ra was the Egyptian sun god).

The list goes on......

What a sad world we live in sometimes when things like this go unanswered as to not upset what has already been embedded as historical fact.

I suppose it is possible that Egyptians got to Australia. After all, Roman and Greek colonies made it as far as India and it's only a simple matter of following the coast round SE Asia to get to Oz.

That said, what would be the purpose of hiding such a thing? Oz could make a nice buck out of Egyptian finds, the tourists would lap it up.

EDIT: There is significant evidence that Egyptians had contact with South American cultures and recent tests done with their style of ships has shown they can travel across large swathes of Ocean...

So where are the academics? If this is true why no academic interst? Why that media-hungry man from the Egyptian dept of antiquiites is not there? Haddawi? I am a bit suspicious. Good find though.

Dr Hawass would either be all over it to disprove it, or just simply would ignore it. He is a media whore and will go to great lengths to protect the status quo..

That said, I am on the fence with regard to this. The OP's source link is dubious, at best, and there is no real evidence that those pics where even taken in Oz...

Extremely interesting if true... I cant actually see anything to back up any of this information though? For example I'm just seeing pictures of rock carvings that could be from anywhere and all this information seems to be from another forum post with no articles linked to back up the claims.

The Egyptians also had dealings with ancient Ireland as well - as Michael Tsarion details.

Australia seem to be chock full of anomalies that are being hushed up by the archeological establishment- interstingly they are using the same tactic as in North America, of using 'cultural sensitivity' of the aborigials to ignore any evidence of other settlers/influences - there are even a couple of Pyramids in Australia!

Here is an interesting read I found the other day involving HAARP. It involves a lot of other stuff, it's all centralizing around petroglyphs, some of which were found in Australia. It's a true story. Here is the link to where I found it posted, the OP included lots of images. (on page 2)
Here are some links that go with the Original story:

No real myth there.

There seems to be just far to much of this type of ancient legend from all over the world to dismiss it as just nonesense - there is just huge amounts of evidence pointing to alien beings and technology being here prior to Egypt - if this is where the bloodline families originated that have ruled this planet ever since - it is no surprise that they will keep their origins from ever becoming common knowledge.

Around 3,000 BC there came to Ireland a people known racially as the Gaels and specifically as the Tuatha de Danaan (the tribe of the goddess Danu). The word Gael connotes “the pure ones.” They were reputed to be a tribe of powerful Druid-kings, possessed of giant stature, great physical strength and weapons and instruments of “magical” power. They declared that they had come from four islands (Falias, Murias, Finias, and Gorias) in the Atlantic that had been destroyed in a deluge caused by the misuse of “magic.” The High King of the Gaels was, suggestively, called Nuada (pronounced Nuah, like Noah). Upon their arrival they made for the west country and after meeting with the ambassadors of the indigenous Iberians, they made war. The de Danaan were victorious but during the conflict Nuada’s arm was cut off. As a result he had to abdicate from the throne, for it was said that none that were “blemished” in any way could rule over the Gaels (an edict which has interesting connotations concerning genetic purity). Later the de Danaan physician fashioned and knit to his king’s body what is rather abstrusely described as a “silver arm.” A few suspect that what lies behind this tale is cybernetics technology for it is speculated that the de Danaan came from Atlantis. The kings and their consorts ruled from Derry in the north where the burial cairn of Nuada still stands. Derry comes from a word meaning Druids. Of the many strange treasures in their possession the de Danaans had four of especial importance. These are a sword, a lance, a chalice or cauldron, and a stone, called the Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny) which could speak. It is thought that these are the prototypes for the suits of the Tarot and of regular gaming cards. It was recorded of this Lance of Lugh that it shook so violently and radiated such heat that those who went anywhere near it would have their hair and fingernails drop off and themselves finally reduced to a heap of ash.

I'm not sure on all that was mentioned, but I do know that there are heiroglyphs very close to where I live. It is only a short walk from a track though nobody knows about them.

This link shows some photos of the glyphs.

Obviously the 1st is not so anchient & doesnt need debate. As for the credibility of the site, its an official University website so its no hoax.

Here is a YouTube video

In addition to this, & I cannot find anything on it right now, many years ago I did hear an archeologist speak about a discovery of proof of metalurgical work on the North Queensland coast (NE Australia), dated to a time before the Aboriginals arrival, also something the aboriginals did not develop.

They are also the reason why I feel this is being covered up. The glyphs near Gosford are nothing like any aboriginal rock art so they did not do them. There has been a push for decades to have the aboriginals given more recognition as the 'traditional owners'. Just imagine it as being the same situation as admitting the American Indians were not the original inhabitants over there, it wont happen. Theres been too much time & effort giving them the status they have.

Got an Aboriginal art, mythology or folk lore relating to Egyptians in Australia?

I mean, surely the Aboriginal community would have noticed Egyptians walking around!

It would be interesting if there were indeed some of that to support the OP source.

Good question!

Some information I found on your question is as follows:

Beside the Hawkesbury River, very old aboriginal rock art depicts strange visitors to the continent, including people looking like Egyptians.

Aboriginal tribes of the NW Kimberley's still worship a mother-goddess identical to that once worshipped by Gympie district tribes and which resembles that of ancient middle east peoples. Kimberley tribes also include some groups bearing apparent middle east racial features and speak many ancient Egyptian words in their language.

In 1931 in the N.W. Kimberley's, Prof. A. P. Elkin, Professor of Anthropology at Sydney University came upon a tribe of Aborigines who had not met a white man before. The professor was astounded when tribal elders greeted him with Ancient Secret masonic hand signs. He was struck by the startling sematic features present in the natives. He discovered the Aborigines worshipped the sun. They also had an earth mother and Rainbow Serpent Cult. Later he discovered many of the words spoken were of Egyptian origin. This is the area of the famous Wandjina Cave Art. According to legend the Wanjina came from across the Indian Ocean in great vessels.

Some Egyptians left home and wound up in Australia...carving stuff in rocks? Not the Northernmost point in Australia, but 9000 miles (as the crow flies) away on the SE coast and inland?!

The rest of the account doesn't matter after that.

FWIW the story is a shaggy dog tale, made-up and intended to attract the gullible. The carvings are clearly not Egyptian or even ancient. If anyone on ATS has any doubts about this story being a yarn...look at this picture without smiling.

OMFG penguins!!

I only read a quarter way through and bet 1000 ATS points that Rex Gilroy's in there somewhere with his Gympie pyramid.

Australian History has taught that many Europeans had "Discovered" Australia before Captain Cook.
Mathew Flinders, Abel Tasman, Probably the Portugese, The Malakans (Indonesians) the Chinese. Etc etc.
Australia was officially on the Maps by the 1600s, then known as New Holland.
Older European Maps also showed a Southern Land.
Why didnt the Egyptians sail to Aust via the Coast...not really that far when you look at the Earth...Past India, Past SE Asia, Past Indonesian..then there!!!!
Ancient Greek coins have also been recently found (last century), exposed by tilling of the land.
And the Egyptian loved Gold, and theres plenty of that here.

I believe that Aboriginal Dreamtime, DOES mention Fair skinned "dressed" people. As do some rock art.
People also have forgotten to mention the Continents of Atlantis (Atlantic) and Lemura (Pacific), which apparently sunk around 15000? years ago...right about time of the "Great Flood" and melting of ice, change in coastlines etc.
I also read recently that DNA recovered in ancient skeletons in South America are VERY similar to the Australian Native what does that mean???
Also give credit to the First Australians....they Walked from Europe Area somewhere, all the way to Australia. They Designed the most ingenious aeronautical flying weapon known to ancient some time in the last 50000 years.
The Boomerang. (A flying Triangle!!!)
They designed an attatchment fitted to the end of their spears, that effectively gave them an extra arms length, therefore MUCH greater Leverage....The Woomera. Good throwers could, apparently, throw a spear clear through a tree.
Another thing too, First Australians are not African Negros, they are genetically Caucasian.

A list of state by state discoveries found in Australia.


The Gympie Pyramid. This pyramidal structure was situated to the north-east of Gympie. It was 100 feet high and consisted of a series of terraces up to 4 feet tall and eight feet across and was constructed of small to larger lumps of localised stone. It had three entrances. There was also another structure nearby. Incidentally, a similar structure existed at Penrith, New South Wales and five others were said to exist in the eastern Sepik region of Papua New Guinea and that these in turn matched other examples found in Egypt. There is also an early history of the possible gold mining activity in the area that took place at that time. The story of the 'Gympie Pyramid' is one by itself and due to space restrictions cannot be expanded here. (Please refer to the notes at the end of the article)
As far back as the 1850's, the early settlers of the Gympie region found many relics belonging to ancient races including pottery fragments, metal tools, forged implements and carvings. One such find found in a field near Mothar Mountain east of Gympie was an ancient crudely hand-forged spoon of an unknown bronze alloy indicating great antiquity. It appeared to be Middle-Eastern in origin.
In 1890, a stepped pyramid structure was found in jungle near Gordonvale south of Cairns.
At Long Island situated in the Whitsunday Passage, lies a wreck of a ship, when in c. 1890, a local sheep farmer named Kean came across some silver cutlery and pieces of silver plate. Further up on the land near the wreck, past the high water mark, he found a Spanish coin and, about 200 yards farther inland, more coins, both silver and gold. Another mystery!
Furthermore, a Grecian coin c. 23 BC. and more scarabs were found in Cairns / Gordonvale regions as well as rock inscriptions in 1910 and 1978 suggesting that a second Egyptian colony had begun c. 200 – 300 BC.
In the Brisbane 'Sunday Sun' newspaper dated 24th July, 1989, a feature article stated a small stone scarab with hieroglyphics – an amulet or seal of office for an important official had been unearthed in 1910 at Mossman, North Queensland. The scarab was originally found two metres below the surface during the construction of a well. It was 9cm in length and made of sandstone. It is known that scarab seals were worn or placed on property from Egypt to Syria. Commanders of the Egyptian ships and army forces also used them as insignia. It also reported of an unusual mound with a perfect square base was found in dense rainforest near Townsville.
2000 year-old Greek and Ptolemaic coins were reportedly found at numerous coastal locations in northern Australia. The most notable was one found by Andrew Henderson in 1910 at the Barron Falls near Cairns, Queensland. It was identified as a Ptolemy IV bronze coin bearing a recognisable head of the horned Zeus of Ommon. It was 1½" in diameter and ¼" thick and regarded as a priceless relic. It was apparently identified by the Brisbane Numismatic Society c. 1959 as being minted in Barce, Cyrenaica during the reign of Pharaoh Ptolemy IV who ruled from c. 221 to 204 BC. The reverse side shows an eagle riding a thunderbolt – a Ptolemaic insignia.
A Rameses I royal cartouche (an oval ring enclosing Egyptian hieroglyphics) estimated to be several thousand years old was dug up in North Queensland in 1911.
In 1912, workmen digging a well shaft at Gordonvale south of Cairns unearthed at a depth of 12 feet, a large rock carved in the form of a scarab beetle, an object of worship in ancient Egypt.
Just east of Gympie, Queensland, in the 1930's, a highly respected early pioneer of the forest industry while inspecting new areas of old forests between Mt. Wolvi and Mt. Wahpunga west of Lakes Como and Cootharaba in the Cooloola National Park region, uncovered a very ancient 37cm chalice with removable lid/handle embedded in the clay of an old gully water flow. The bronzed-pewter artefact displayed ornate hand-beaten or cast decorations depicting Grecian ribboned heads, lion-head motifs and many other forms of imprint. The handle was missing but points where it was attached can be seen. The chalice-type artefact may have been a wine decanter; or a water jar; an ornate drinking cup (with lid); or possibly an oil/wax light burner. One side had been damaged and holed. In 1998, the current owner of the artefact consulted two antique dealers. In their opinion, they believed the object was extremely old and possibly Egypto-Greek because of the patterns displayed. Today's interest centres on how such an object could have been found in such an inaccessible jungle place where at that time, Europeans would have never travelled or resided. Incidentally, the location where it was found is approximately half-way between Lake Cootharaba north of Noosa and the 'pyramid' site just east of Gympie and near to recently discovered pre-European quarry in the lakes region.
A golden scarab was found on the eastern side of Mothar Mountain east of Gympie in 1959 along with strange inscriptions on a large rock in the same region.
Mr. C. Morton of Gordonvale near Cairns, Queensland, reported in 1960 that at Boogie, an engineer Mr. W. Johnstone while on a bush surveying expedition came across a moss covered slab of what was thought to be stone but was in fact, a slab of cut marble. It was recovered and cleaned to reveal symbols cut into the stone of an unknown origin but in fact resembled Egyptian. Apparently Australian Museums ignored all the photographs but the British Museum identified the inscriptions as possibly Phoenician.
A jade Ankh (the cross of life) was uncovered near Murgon west of Gympie in 1964.
At Ipswich in Queensland during 1965, yielded a cache of hand-forged bronze-copper and iron tools plus pottery and coins dating back more than 2000 years. The artefacts were claimed to be of Egyptian origin.
A carved stone statue (now known as the famous Gympie 'Ape Idol') was unearthed when a field was being ploughed (c. 1966) near the site of the 'Gympie Pyramid'. Two theories is that (a) It could be in fact a replica of the Egyptian god Thoth – the God of Wisdom and Inventor of the Arts of Writing which could be at least 3000 years old and was made from local ironstone. Or (cool.gif It could be one of the missing sacrificial statues for the Chinese God of Longevity buried in the great south land by Cheng Ho during his voyage of 1432(?).This near metre high artefact is currently displayed in a glass case at the Gympie District Historical and Gold Mining Museum.
In the late 1960's, Rockhampton in Central Queensland was credited with the finding of an Egyptian calendar stone and gold scarabs, gold coins and other artefacts estimated to be aged around 2700 BC.
During a dig in 1969 at Cooktown, two gold coins of the Ptolemy period c. 200 BC were discovered.
In 1976, a team of researchers from the Soils Division of the C.S.R.I.O. whilst using a sand auger at Hook Point on Fraser Island, Queensland, recovered at a depth of 2.2 to 2.4 metres, an ancient Celtic lead fishing weight which measured 6cm x 11cm which had a hole in it which indicates an attachment to a fishing net. Extensive studies were carried out and it appears that it was left on the beach somewhere around 1235 – 1400 AD. It is now in the Queensland Museum.
An obelisk stone with a pyramid apex was found in scrubland at Coen in North Queensland in 1978.
In the early 1990's, two elderly men, John Mansell and Ken McKinnon located a small 8 inch (200mm) high carved sandstone/granite head resembling Easter Island art forms in the Tamaree area north-east of Gympie and a short distance from the 'Gympie Pyramid' site. It has not been identified.
A weathered fragment of an old wooden carved object was found in 1997 at the same Gympie site preserved from the weather by a collapsed rock wall. The carving fragment depicts a deity sitting in a squat position holding a portion ledge covering? Intricate line inscriptions can still be seen but cannot be translated. The origin of the artefact again may be Indian/Tamil or Asian/Polynesian. As for age, this has not been determined but it is considered to be several hundred years old and pre-European.
An unidentified hand carved jade-like knife handle depicting a monkey-type creature was uncovered on a quartz-sand hillside east of Gympie where an ancient pre-European/non-Aboriginal site investigation was being carried out in June 1998 by local researchers. The artefact may be of Indian/Tamil or Asian/Polynesian origin.
Aboriginal drawings at the Herberton Aboriginal Gallery in North Queensland, supposedly depict an Egyptian Nile plant.
Magnetic metallic granite artefacts similar to Black Mountain rocks outside Cooktown, North Queensland were supposedly found at the great pyramid in Egypt.
There is a story of a North Queensland cattleman who used to serve his dinner guests off gold plates fashioned from melted down coins found on the station.
On Tuesday 10th February, 2004, the Brisbane 'Courier Mail' has an article (page 13) which reports Phoenician relics being found near Armstrong's Beach south of Sarina. It includes, which is to believed a sceptre of black cast steel, weighing 8 kg with a hammered flat tip at one end. Reports of ancient stone carvings have also been found in the area. Val Osborn and Gil Deem also mention of a headland near Freshwater Point which contains sparkling specks of telluride which is a mix of gold and silver in a seam in the cliff. It appears that this seam was worked extensively a long, long time ago). The full report of this find can be read in the above mentioned article).
Aboriginal legend has it, that a possible Spanish galleon still remains buried with its treasure at the southern end of Stradbroke Island at Eighteen Mile Swamp, 2 miles north of Swan Bay or approximately 5km north of Jumpinpin. An article on this "treasure" can be read in the 'Australian Gold, Gem & Treasure' magazine. December 2006). There is also a web-site that relates to this as well, and can be viewed at:


Norman Lindsay sketched some drawings which record the fact that the Spanish ships 'Santa Barbara' and 'Saint Y Zabel' took possession of Australia at Bondi, Sydney c.1600 with their sign of the Spanish Cross, ship drawings and names. Mystery ring bolts can be seen at Point Piper rocks.
A 2000 year-old axe blade identified as Middle-Eastern was found in 1960 in inland New South Wales.
In 1969 about eight miles from Sydney, the Gladesville Bridge area produced hand-forged fragments of iron pottery inscribed with symbols and ancient deity representations claimed to be of Egyptian/Phoenician origin.
In 1980, a woman unearthed a carved stone head of the Chinese Goddess Shao Lin – the Protectress of Mariners near Milton, New South Wales. This is on display at Rex Gilroy's Museum in Tamworth, New South Wales.
An amber glass obelisk-shaped pin at least 5000 years was found in a field at Kyogle in Northern New South Wales in 1983.
Two large carved stone heads were excavated close to where the Nepean River adjoins the Hawkesbury River, New South Wales – one of these heads is bearded. It has been suggested, that they may be of Middle-eastern design possibly Phoenician and are extremely old. They appear to be identical to the Phoenician Sun God Mithras and Earth Mother Goddess Demeter which were unearthed by a farmer many years ago from ancient river gravels near Richmond.
A 4th century BC Egyptian figurine and a Roman seal ring (both of which were authenticated) were discovered at The Rocks in Sydney, New South Wales while archaeologists were excavating the site prior to construction of then new ANA Hotel.
Located on the Hawkesbury River in New South Wales found in recent years was another carved stone statue similar to the one found near the 'Gympie Pyramid'. Could this have been the third and final statue from the Chinese Emperor left behind by Cheng Ho?
During building site excavations at Dee Why, Sydney, a perfectly preserved old war mask was found by architect Mr. Neil Durbach of Sydney. Archaeologists have reputedly dated it as being at least 2000 to 3000 years old and of ancient Aztec origins. It is believed that it may have originated from the Inca fortress of Sasay Ituaman in Peru.
In recent times, an onyx rock carved in the form of a scarab was dug up by a man near the Nepean River outside Penrith, New South Wales, which lies on the eastern side of the Blue Mountains, where, at Katoomba some years ago, council workmen dug up from a depth of 18 feet, a small black stone bearing Phoenician letterings believed to spell the name Thuffi.
In early 2004, a lucky Central New South Wales treasure hunter metal detecting around an old house built in the 1880's found a Roman coin (Billon Antoninus of Carinus) minted between 283 AD - 285AD). How did that get there?

In 2002, a treasure hunter using a metal detector at Port Phillip Bay found a Roman coin depicting Lucinus I c. 307 – 324 AD.

An Australian 'Stonehenge' was reportedly discovered on the Nullarbor Plains, South Australia by Mr. Len Beadell while surveying areas for atomic tests at the time.

Ancient Aboriginal cave paintings depict European women and bearded men wearing Babylonian-styled hats exist in the Kimberley ranges of N.W. Australia. These can still be seen today.
At the Kimberleys of N.W. Australia in the early 1900's, an Aboriginal clan who had never seen a white man was found to be using ancient Masonic hand signs, words and symbols of Egyptian origin, worshipping the sun and the moon; had a Mother Earth and snake cult spiritually; performed expert ritualised circumcisions of all men; and practiced mummification of the dead in the same manner of the Egyptians.
In 1963 a team of skin divers located the old Dutch ship ‘Batavia’ wrecked on a reef in 1629 in the Alrolhos, a group of islands and reefs 45 miles from Geraldton, Western Australia, which contained a valuable amount of treasure.
Noted Perth skin diver, the late Allan Robinson believed he discovered the remains of an ancient Phoenician trireme (boat) off nearby King Sound, where an unnamed prospector had dug up a 2700 year old Phoenician bronze inscribed plate.
Miners in the north of Australia claimed to have found apparent ancient open-cut copper mines in the Kimberley coastal area where fragments of Palestinian and other pottery have been unearthed. Similar mines dug by Libyans around 2200 years ago were purportedly located in West Irian with nearby ancient rock inscriptions.
On several occasions, people have recovered Spanish coins dated 1618, 1648, 1652, 1653 and 1653 on the beaches about 80 miles north of Perth. Some of these could be from the wreck ‘Gilt Dragon’ which was shipwrecked in the area in April 1656.

Non-Aboriginal stone hieroglyphics were found at the Olgas and Palm Creek in the Northern Territory.
Aboriginal paintings on Groote Eyland (Island) off the Northern Territory coast clearly depict ancient prows (ships).
Egyptian artefacts and a stone scarab were found in 1960 near the Daly River in the Northern Territory.

Mysterious ruins consisting of huge stone blocks were found on New Hannover Island in the Bismarck Archipelago many years ago by a Government Patrol Officer Mr. Ray Sherridan. He also found a large stone idol of a human-bodied, bird-headed deity, and nearby strange symbols that included a chariot. He believed the ruin resembled an Egyptian sun-worship temple.

Quite fascinating and it certainly doesn't surprise me.
There is much more to ancient history, ancient civilizations and their migrations and interactions than we know and / or are told.

A lot of established reputations with comfortable salaries and generous research funds could be compromised if accepted timelines / theories were challenged too vigourously.

People from New Guinea, Indonesia and possibly China have been thought to have traded with various Aboriginal tribes of North Eastern Australia.
There are myths of people in the same area who pre-date The Aborigenes yet it is hard to find hard facts and data.
It is more than likely that the Tamil people had extensive knowledge of Australia well before any European contact and there is evidence to suggest that some Aborigines descended from India itself.

You mention Captain Cook and Europeans yet The Ancient Egyptians were African.

And Captain Cook was just one in a series of Europeans that 'discovered' Australia, the first sighting of which is generally thought to have been by a Dutch navigator called Willem Janszoon in 1606.

How did these ancient egyptians feed themselves? Northern Australia is tropical and wouldn't sustain the food crops that the egyptians are known to grow. Only in southern Australia would we see the right environment for food production and there we would find traces of civilization. A colony would have influenced the locals in such a way that it would have changed them that would have been apparent to Europeans but we see no other outside influence in their culture.....unless these artifacts go back way before the aboriginies got there.

Its a good question.

To try to answer one off the top of my head I suspect since artifacts have been unearthed in virtually every state, there must have been different colonies all around the place, which were in Australia to find more gold to take back to Egypt.

These colonies perhaps supported or traded amongst themselves and other races for food. Ships with food from Egypt may have been coming to and fro also.

Its a small price to pay for such a golden reward.

I don't know how true this is also, but I have read gold can be identified by where it had come from within the world and when tested, the gold from some ancient Egyptian relics had indeed come from Australia.
