The first known inhabitants of the Australian continent most likely arrived by land bridges from Southeast Asia at least 65,000 years ago. They were the ancestors to the modern day Indigenous Australians. The first Europeans land on the continent were the Dutch in 1606. They named the island continent "New Holland" and the name remained until 19th century when Australia became popularized. In 1901, Australia became its own nation, separating it from British rule.
Once Australia's capital, it was the first city to host the Olympics outside of North America and Europe.
