You haven't explained what you think is in error. I've tweaked the coordinates in the article a bit; but if you still think that there is a problem, you'll need to give a clear explanation of what it is. Deor (talk) 14:30, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Australia was discovered by Spain[edit]

Australia was discovered by Spain. Do you even know why Australia has that name? It's because of the fact that Philip II of Spain had roots on the Austrian Royal Family. Austria = Australia. Fix that information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.203.208.198 (talk) 18:04, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Turnbull bowing and scraping at "the Pentagon"[edit]

If you want to exhibit Australians' chronic colonial insecurity, sure. But no other nation would be happy replacing a more neutral pic of their PM with one in supplication to a colonial master. Tony (talk) 06:05, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Prehistory[edit]

I was going to updatre the history section but can't see the 'edit' tab? See https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/07/170719132252.htm and the https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2017/jul/19/dig-finds-evidence-of-aboriginal-habitation-up-to-80000-years-ago webpages which suggest an earlier occupation of Australia than is reflected in the article. 2A00:23C5:BC00:8A00:DDAA:A8FD:838A:AA9C (talk) 21:53, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

I've just added a disputed template to the Pre-colonial history section. There are a few factual inaccuracies, particularly regarding the phrase "most Indigenous Australians were hunter-gatherers". This statement is unsourced. Academic consensus has emerged in the past few years that Indigenous people were largely not hunter-gatherers, but rather had semi-permanent settlements and farming and irrigation systems. It is claimed that Indigenous people became hunter-gatherer after many settlements were destroyed during colonisation. Apart from sporadic changes to the dates, this section doesn't appear to have been updated in quite a while so it may need a rewrite. JamesA >talk 13:11, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
