Ancient Australian History There were eleven ships in the First Fleet. They were all small ships that included two naval ships, six convict ships and three storeships for supplies. The ships were specially built for the long eight month voyage which had to carry prison chambers for the convicts, and also carry food and animals. The animals included sheep, goats, chickens, dogs and cats, that also needed special areas to place them. The supply ships were loaded with enough supplies for the new settlement to survive for two years, after which they would have to make use of the land, local animals, and materials. 2 Naval Ships: HMS Sirius HMS Supply 6 Convict Ships: Alexander Charlotte Friendship Lady Penrhyn Prince of Wales Scarborough 3 Supply Ships: Golden Grove Fishburn Borrowdale The exact numbers is not exactly known but the following numbers are given in Gillen (1989): Reference:Mollie Gillen.

Kid 2: “For the theft of one linen shirt, value 10 shillings, five silk stockings, value 5 shillings, one pistol, value 5 shillings, and two aprons, value 2 shillings. Kid 3: “My name is Elizabeth Haywood and I'm 13 years old. Kid 2: “For the theft of one linen gown, value 4 shillings, a silk bonnet value 2 shillings, and a bath cloth cloak, value 1 shilling. In London in the 1700s, gaols were full of people like Elizabeth and John; poor, hungry, unwanted. Reporter: England's laws were really, really harsh. One solution was transportation. KID 2: “John Hudson, you are sentenced to transportation across the seas for a period of seven years.” Captain Arthur Phillip was chosen to lead that colony.

Australia Australia's ecosystem is an unusual one because of its remote location. As a result, there are many animal species that occur here and nowhere else in the world, such as the platypus, kangaroo, echidna, and koala. Australia has 516 national parks to protect its unique plants and animals. One of Australia's most amazing sites rises like an enormous whale's back from a flat red-soil desert called the Red Center. Australia is home to many of the deadliest species of animals on the planet. There are several types of rain forests in Australia.
