    SPANISH DISCOVERY AND NAMING OF AUSTRALIA

    Written by cardinal Moran, he argues that Pedro Fernandez DE Quiros landed in 1606 at Gladstone
    He claimed and also named Australia for the Spanish crown.

    Re: SPANISH DISCOVERY AND NAMING OF AUSTRALIA

    re this article on the Spanish christianing of Australia as being a Spanish possesson in 1606 I believe is probably true as the first pioneers to settle in Sydney found ancient stone dwellings not of aboriginal make which were kept quiet about to avoid dispute over their origin which were probably Spanish/ max PS . Look up via google Rex Gilmore of Katoomba New South Wales Australia who is an expert on Spanish occupation and boating evidence in that state Max

    Thanks for the reply, Max. I have seen Rex Gilmore posting on the Spanish in Australia, very very Interesting.
    I would love to know what happen to the artifacts they found.

    Ossy,
    The same thing that happens to all artifacts and relics, that do not comply with written history, Destroyed or buried in a government or museum cellar or warehouse never to see the light of day again, with all of the knowledge of its actual existence erased forever.

    Answer your question?

    Cheers

    I am currently trying to hunt down the Bronze cannon from the Santa Barbara on Facing Island, that was sold to the Captain of the
    Uncle Tom Schooner in the 1800's. Will keep you posted.

    Hey ossy ,
    I saw a presentation by Dennis gojak who talked about Joseph hargraves (the man famous for aviation in Australia and had his face on the old $20note) and how he believed that rock carvings on point piper in Sydney were of the Spanish and done by aboriginals.There is a fenced off area in north bondI golfcourse that is believed to be Spanish..no one knows about it. 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....

    Some more new information on Australia pre cook 16th Century manuscript could rewrite Australian history
    They also found some aboriginal cave painting of a Spanish Nao in north queensland which was on current affair, they were going to carbon date them, It's all been swept under the carpet
    nobody knows anything about it any more !

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Have you read "1491" by Gavin Menzies; pages 197 to 214, regarding the Chinese Treasure Fleets of 1421-3; and Zhou Man's nearly complete circumnavigation of Australia during that period?

    Hi Don , Fancy seeing you here on a Aussie post
    The English did a good job of destroying any evidence of Spanish and Portuguese earlier visit's to Australia and covering up any wrecks found .
    mahogany ship
    Have a read of this Don , read the part of the government cover up. It also mentions possible Chinese wreck .

    Hello Sam !

    Menzies brings up the subject of the Mahogany ship at least four times in his book (pages 188-189, 206, 318 and 450).
    All his evidence points to the Chinese as the source of the mahogany ship. It is fascinating reading. Without contrary evidence to prove him wrong, it's hard to refute his analysis.

    And I am curious why the English were so successful in destroying all the Spanish and Portuguese evidence, but left all those Dutch wrecks in place round Australia?
