How the British Transformed Australia
Early British Settlement
Believed to be the oldest continent in the world, Australia's history dates back millions of years. This unique continent was first occupied by Aboriginal people who arrived here tens of thousands of years ago.

However, in the last couple of centuries, the British and their dogs, together with evolving technology and purpose bred dogs, changed Australia forever. This is an outline of that journey.
