Exploration de l'Australie par les Européens

L'exploration de l'Australie par les Européens se fit progressivement, en plusieurs vagues d'expéditions terrestres et maritimes. On croit souvent que l'Australie a été découverte par le lieutenant de la Royal Navy James Cook en 1770, mais il n'est en fait qu'un explorateur parmi beaucoup d'autres qui avaient découvert le continent et l'avaient abordé bien avant, et même 170 ans auparavant pour le premier d'entre eux, Cristóvão de Mendonça.

Pour autant, l'exploration de l'Australie ne se termine pas avec James Cook : après l'installation de la première colonie, il faudra plus d'un siècle pour que l'ensemble du continent soit connu des Européens.

Latest population figures: Top 50 cities in Australia

As we’ve previously seen, Australia, already an urban nation, is adding more and more people to our capital cities, which accounted for 83% of population growth in the past year, and 77% of the past 5 years’ growth. This view of the top 50 centres is a little different. There are centres in here (eg. Melton, Central Coast) which are considered part of the Greater Capital Cities, but which also stand alone as discrete centres in their own right. However most suburbs which are contiguously urban within our larger metropolitan areas are included in the population for that larger centre (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane etc.). For reference, Australia overall has grown 1.4% in the past year, and 7.9% in 5 years. History of Gold Coast, Queensland - Wikipedia.
