As areas of central Australia shifted from wetlands to the deserts of today, Aboriginal peoples devised new methods to thrive in their environment.“The invention and dispersion of the tula – a small multi-purpose cutting tool – is a prime example of the innovations pioneered by Aboriginal peoples as a result of increased drought conditions,” said Poll.Indeed, Shane admitted that many ancient Aborigine words are only known today because one early settler, Lieutenant William Dawes, formed an attachment with a local woman called Patyegarang, who taught him the language of the Eora people - which he recorded in notebooks.

The "Eora people" are the coastal Aborigines of the Sydney district.In 1790 Governor Phillip noted: ‘ About the north-west part of this harbour there is a tribe which is mentioned as being very powerful.This district is called Cammerra, the head of the tribe is named Cammerragal.The modern history of the city began with the arrival of a First Fleet of British ships in 1788 and the foundation of a penal colony by Great Britain.From 1788 to 1900 Sydney was the capital of the British colony of New South Wales. In 1900, Sydney became a state capital, when New South Wales voted to join the Australian Federation.
