Australia is a country rich in culture and history. The name Australia was first used by Matthew Flinders in 1804, when he marked the continent “Terra Australis” on a map. Its etymology, or origins, go much further back than that, though. Before European settlement, the indigenous people of Australia had various names for the territories and, most importantly, for their land. In this lesson, we will explore the etymology of “Australia” and discover the deeper meaning behind the name.
