Permanent European settlement began in with the establishment of a British penal colony in New South Wales. Since , more than 7 million people have settled in Australia. From the late s, there was a significant increase in immigration from Asian and other non-European countries, making Australia a multicultural country. Net overseas migration has increased from 30, in —93  to , persons in — A sociological study concluded that: Australia is a signatory to the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and has resettled many asylum seekers.
In recent years, Australia's policy of mandatory detention of unauthorised arrivals by boat has attracted controversy. The milestone was 33 years ahead of schedule. Senator Pauline Hanson has called for a national plebiscite asking voters if they think immigration is too high. Opinion polls show majority support for reduced immigration.
The first migration of humans to the continent took place around 65, years ago  via the islands of Maritime Southeast Asia and Papua New Guinea as part of the early history of human migration out of Africa. European migration to Australia began with the British convict settlement of Sydney Cove on 26 January The First Fleet comprised 11 ships carrying convicts and officials, members of the crew, marines, and their families and children.
The settlers consisted of petty criminals, second-rate soldiers and a crew of sailors. There were few with skills needed to start a self-sufficient settlement, such as farmers and builders, and the colony experienced hunger and hardships. Male settlers far outnumbered female settlers.
The Second Fleet arrived in bringing more convicts. The conditions of the transportation was described as horrific and worse than slave transports. The fleet was more of a drain on the struggling settlement than of any benefit.
Conditions on the Third Fleet , which followed on the heels of the Second Fleet in , were a bit better. The fleet comprised 11 ships. Of the more than convicts brought onto the ships, male convicts and 9 female convicts died during the voyage. Other transport fleets bringing further convicts as well as freemen to the colony would follow. By the end of the penal transportation in , approximately , people had entered Australia as convicts.
The colonies promoted migration by a variety of schemes. The Gold rush era , beginning in , led to an enormous expansion in population, including large numbers of British and Irish settlers, followed by smaller numbers of Germans and other Europeans, and Chinese.
This latter group were subject to increasing restrictions and discrimination, making it impossible for many to remain in the country. With the Federation of the Australian colonies into a single nation, one of the first acts of the new Commonwealth Government was the Immigration Restriction Act , otherwise known as the White Australia policy , which was a strengthening and unification of disparate colonial policies designed to restrict non-White settlement.
Because of opposition from the British government, an explicit racial policy was avoided in the legislation, with the control mechanism being a dictation test in a European language selected by the immigration officer. This was selected to be one the immigrant did not know; the last time an immigrant passed a test was in Perhaps the most celebrated case was Egon Erwin Kisch , a left-wing Czechoslovakian journalist, who could speak five languages, who was failed in a test in Scottish Gaelic, and deported as illiterate.
The government also found that if it wanted immigrants it had to subsidise migration. The great distance from Europe made Australia a more expensive and less attractive destination than Canada and the United States. The number of immigrants needed during different stages of the economic cycle could be controlled by varying the subsidy.
Before federation in , assisted migrants received passage assistance from colonial government funds. The British government paid for the passage of convicts, paupers, the military and civil servants.
Few immigrants received colonial government assistance before With the onset of the Great Depression , the Governor-General proclaimed the cessation of immigration until further notice, and the next group to arrive were Jewish refuge families from Germany in Approved groups such as these were assured of entry by being issued with a Certificate of Exemption from the Dictation Test.
After World War II Australia launched a massive immigration program , believing that having narrowly avoided a Japanese invasion, Australia must "populate or perish". Hundreds of thousands of displaced Europeans migrated to Australia and over 1,, British subjects immigrated under the Assisted Passage Migration Scheme , colloquially becoming known as Ten Pound Poms.
The qualifications were straightforward: There were initially no skill restrictions, although under the White Australia Policy , people from mixed-race backgrounds found it very difficult to take advantage of the scheme. In the s, multiculturalism largely displaced cultural selectivity in immigration policy. Deutsche Bank AG Deutsche Telekom AG Jobs - Alle Stellenangebote auf einen Blick.

Der Smartphone-Markt strauchelt - diese Trends sollen ihn retten. Didgeridoo — The didgeridoo is a wind instrument of northern Australia. Traditionally, a didgeridoo was made by selecting a section of a Eucalyptus branch , then burying it near a termite mound so that the termites would hollow it out, to produce a long, hollow piece of wood suitable for fashioning the instrument.
Woomera — The woomera is a type of spear thrower , adding thrust to a spear as part of a throwing action. It utilised a comb to lift the ears of the crop to where revolving beaters deposited the grain into a bin. The Melbourne Football Club rules of are the oldest surviving set of laws for Australian football.
Thompson and Thomas Smith. Before each match the rules had to be agreed by the two teams involved. By , several other clubs had agreed to play by an updated version of Melbourne's rules. During a land boom the Office had trouble producing the many maps and documents required to keep land records updated. By varying the speed at which the two wires were extracted, the torpedo could be steered to the left or right by an operator on the shore. He designed it primarily to drill rock and to dig coal.
The Coolgardie safe was a box made of wire and hessian sitting in water, which was placed on a verandah so that any breeze would evaporate the water in the hessian and via the principle of evaporation, cool the air inside the box.
The Coolgardie safe was used into the middle of the 20th century as a means of preserving food. Birchall decided that it would be a good idea to cut the sheets in half, back them with cardboard and glue them together at the top.
Both worked independently at the same time on different parts of the process for the mining company Broken Hill Pty. Michell bearings contain a number of sector-shaped pads, arranged in a circle around the shaft, and that are free to tilt. These create wedge-shaped regions of oil inside the bearing between the pads and a rotating disk, which support the applied thrust and eliminate metal-on-metal contact. The small size one-tenth the size of old bearing designs , low friction and long life of Michell's invention made possible the development of larger propellers and engines in ships.
They were used extensively in ships built during World War I , and have become the standard bearing used on turbine shafts in ships and power plants worldwide. The process used centrifugal force to evenly distribute concrete onto wire reinforcing, revolutionising pipe manufacture. The board was propelled in a sitting position with two small hand blades, which was probably not a highly efficient method to negotiate the surf.
The deck is flat with a bung plug at the rear and a nose ring with a leash, possibly originally required for mooring. The rails are square and there is pronounced rocker. The boards' obvious buoyancy indicates hollow construction, with thin boards of cedar fixed longtitudinally down the board.
The British war office rejected the idea at the time, but De Mole made several more proposals to the British War Office in and , and formally requested he be recognised as the inventor of the Mark I tank. One pole was applied to a skin pad soaked in strong salt solution' while the other pole 'consisted of a needle insulated except at its point, and was plunged into the appropriate cardiac chamber'.
The first ute rolled off the Ford production lines in The idea came from a Geelong farmer's wife who wrote to Ford in advising the need for a new sort of vehicle to take her 'to church on Sundays and pigs to market on Mondays. Edward Hirst of Sydney invented the combination polo and lacrosse sport which was first played at Ingleburn near Sydney in It was first used that same year to sow wheat near Dalby in Queensland.
It was invented by Ian McWilliam. The instrument, which can measure one part in 10 million, has been used in chemical analysis in the petrochemical industry, medical and biochemical research, and in the monitoring of the environment.
Designed and constructed by Jack Kennedy with the assistance of Jim Lynich, it was in operation by Angroves' original design with a resealable spout was replaced with a tap by the Penfolds wine company in . The system uses a single piston to directly inject fuel into 5 orbiting chambers. It has never challenged the dominance of four-stroke combustion engines but has replaced many two-stroke engines with a more efficient, powerful and cleaner system. Orbital engines now appear in boats, motorcycles and small cars.
