  1. when first europeans discovered australia?
    this is my question and thanks

    1. There is dispute about first Europeans to discover Australia. Some claim
      the Portuguese were the first to discover Australia. That is not accepted
      by others. First undisputed landing on Australia was by Willem Jansz in
      1606. He thought it was part of New Guinea.
