Itsunami very cool. Hargraves believed the Spanish settled in point piper for a while and managed to get a dig to try to uncover artifacts but nothing was found and he lost his reputation....
    Ive been to bodi to view the carvings. Very interesting. What is really interesting is that the small site has a small chained off fence around it. Yet aboriginal carvings only 5m away are left open and are recarved every few years. Why put a small fence only around the baln ziah site? Point piper i have tried to get to but found its quite built up with houses now going right to the waters edge. Hard to gain access.
    I dont know if they are spanish. The symbols or text dont match anything the spanish used in their explorations of the world. Same with dutch. Cant make a connection. A wreck my lie due west of the carvings as with the symbol. But thats just my perception. No records have been made to a wreck site

    Could be that most of the wrecks are around the alborous islands. May not have known of them.
    For a long time in the 1600s. The entire western side of Aus was known and shown on charts as New Hollad. With directions accually been given to ships heading to manilla. Once the head around Cape town. Sail east till you come to the great south land. Follow the land north to manilla. Which is why so many wrecks are in a small area. And why cast aways who survived went onto manilla and brought rescue back. Because they knew exactly where they were at the time
