The Phoenician jetty is at Sarina, in Queensland, I believe it has recently been signposted as such.

There are stories galore in this whole thread about nearly every possible item and structure left by visitors pre- 1770. I started this thread and I still strongly believe it was possible that Egyptians or Phoenician civilisations visited Australia. Harte here has done a splendid job of trying to disuade me and almost has a couple of times now but I keep going back to articles and readings that make me still think it could have been possible. If you start Googling or reading this thread it will make for an interesting read if you are interested in alternative Australian history.

The way I see it if people could make it here 50,000 years ago what stopped them coming here up until now? The history of Central America and navigational currents makes for interesting reading also, foreigners were visiting that area frequently according to many sources.

Here is 3 links. The first is a good website and gives both reasons for and against. The Rex Gilroy site gives a picture and much info about it seeing he is the main instigator in the Sarina jetty receiving it's status as a Phoenician jetty. Even typing in Sarina, Qld on holiday websites, they make mention of checking out the Phoenician ruins.

If a people could build the pyramids, i don't see how sailing a few thousand miles across the ocean would present much of an obstacle.

There is no cross-over in skills between pyramid building and distance ocean sailing!

WAAS,

What do you want to bet that "name witheld" (see below quote) is Val Osborne or Rex Gilroy?

A Brief Summary on The Sarina Sites, Central Queensland, Australia by (name withheld)

My emphasis.

Quote is from your linked website - http://phoenicia.org/australia.html

Okay then.

Look, read this quote from http://www.abc.net.au/science/news/stories/s153770.htm

Local resident Val Osborn claimed to have found huge sea walls, at Freshwater Point, south of Mackay, four years ago. Mr Osborn claims they date from 1000BC, more than 2,700 before Captain Cook sailed to Australia.

But maritime history expert Dr Steve Mullins from the Central Queensland University said he was suspicious that the find had been kept secret for four years.

"As far as we know, no scientist has seen this site or heard about it. It's so bizzare you wonder if it's a hoax."

"There is evidence that the Phoenicians circumnavigated Africa, but the trading was so intense in the Indian Ocean, why would they go anywhere else?

"Even if they crossed the Cape of Good Hope and got blown south, there would have been thousands of people needed to build such a structure - where did they live?," Dr Mullins said.

"My guess is that it is a natural phenomenon that looks man made, like the Giant's Causeway."

My emphasis.

Dr. Mullins above was not aware that this site had already been examined by an Australian archaeologist - Dr. Bryce Barker. Here's what he says:

Dr Bryce Barker, an archaeologist and specialist in prehistoric Aboriginal archaeology, is alarmed at these reports. From his own research on the Central Queensland Coast and from discussions with his colleagues, Dr Barker says this is definitely not a Phoenician ruin, and there are no iron or copper slags which are 3,000 years old. The reported 800 metre wall is actually a natural rock wall and , in fact, aboriginal fish traps are part of these stone rock formations. The only substantial evidence which exists on the entire north coast of Queensland is that of a strong Aboriginal cultural heritage.

Source: http://www.abc.net.au/rn/talks/lnl/stories/s154244.htm

This of course does not mean that the Phoenecians (or even the Egyptians) couldn't have possibly visited Australia.

Just like we cannot say with complete certainty that the Aborigines themselves didn't sail to Egypt.

In any event, none of the above is worth discussing, given the complete and utter absence of any evidence that would indicate that even the smallest portion of the above spectacular claims might be true.

Note that I'm not saying "No way possible." I am saying it's far, far, far more likely that it never happened. So much more likely, in fact, that the possibility can be safely ignored as vanishingly small.

By all means, then. Let us also make certain that the conversation on the various aspects of the Martian concrete that all the pyramids are made from continues as well over in that thread!

Is there anything else around here that is so silly that it demands we necropost? Probably.

Looks like you got your work cut out for you there coredrill! :lol:

Well I'm going to do a relisting, this is actually a different listing, of the items found in Australia for anyone new here since it has generated a few questions and some new interest, if you find this all a bit "silly" don't bother reading any further, time is precious, don't waste it here, Harte has debunked some of these previously here but many still remain complete mysteries.

QUEENSLAND

The Gympie Pyramid. This pyramidal structure was situated to the north-east of Gympie. It was 100 feet high and consisted of a series of terraces up to 4 feet tall and eight feet across and was constructed of small to larger lumps of localised stone. It had three entrances. There was also another structure nearby. Incidentally, a similar structure existed at Penrith, New South Wales and five others were said to exist in the eastern Sepik region of Papua New Guinea and that these in turn matched other examples found in Egypt. There is also an early history of the possible gold mining activity in the area that took place at that time. The story of the 'Gympie Pyramid' is one by itself and due to space restrictions cannot be expanded here. (Please refer to the notes at the end of the article)

As far back as the 1850's, the early settlers of the Gympie region found many relics belonging to ancient races including pottery fragments, metal tools, forged implements and carvings. One such find found in a field near Mothar Mountain east of Gympie was an ancient crudely hand-forged spoon of an unknown bronze alloy indicating great antiquity. It appeared to be Middle-Eastern in origin.

In 1890, a stepped pyramid structure was found in jungle near Gordonvale south of Cairns.

At Long Island situated in the Whitsunday Passage, lies a wreck of a ship, when in c. 1890, a local sheep farmer named Kean came across some silver cutlery and pieces of silver plate. Further up on the land near the wreck, past the high water mark, he found a Spanish coin and, about 200 yards farther inland, more coins, both silver and gold. Another mystery!

Furthermore, a Grecian coin c. 23 BC. and more scarabs were found in Cairns / Gordonvale regions as well as rock inscriptions in 1910 and 1978 suggesting that a second Egyptian colony had begun c. 200 – 300 BC.

In the Brisbane 'Sunday Sun' newspaper dated 24th July, 1989, a feature article stated a small stone scarab with hieroglyphics – an amulet or seal of office for an important official had been unearthed in 1910 at Mossman, North Queensland. The scarab was originally found two metres below the surface during the construction of a well. It was 9cm in length and made of sandstone. It is known that scarab seals were worn or placed on property from Egypt to Syria. Commanders of the Egyptian ships and army forces also used them as insignia. It also reported of an unusual mound with a perfect square base was found in dense rainforest near Townsville.

2000 year-old Greek and Ptolemaic coins were reportedly found at numerous coastal locations in northern Australia. The most notable was one found by Andrew Henderson in 1910 at the Barron Falls near Cairns, Queensland. It was identified as a Ptolemy IV bronze coin bearing a recognisable head of the horned Zeus of Ommon. It was 1½" in diameter and ¼" thick and regarded as a priceless relic. It was apparently identified by the Brisbane Numismatic Society c. 1959 as being minted in Barce, Cyrenaica during the reign of Pharaoh Ptolemy IV who ruled from c. 221 to 204 BC. The reverse side shows an eagle riding a thunderbolt – a Ptolemaic insignia.

A Rameses I royal cartouche (an oval ring enclosing Egyptian hieroglyphics) estimated to be several thousand years old was dug up in North Queensland in 1911.

In 1912, workmen digging a well shaft at Gordonvale south of Cairns unearthed at a depth of 12 feet, a large rock carved in the form of a scarab beetle, an object of worship in ancient Egypt.

Just east of Gympie, Queensland, in the 1930's, a highly respected early pioneer of the forest industry while inspecting new areas of old forests between Mt. Wolvi and Mt. Wahpunga west of Lakes Como and Cootharaba in the Cooloola National Park region, uncovered a very ancient 37cm chalice with removable lid/handle embedded in the clay of an old gully water flow. The bronzed-pewter artefact displayed ornate hand-beaten or cast decorations depicting Grecian ribboned heads, lion-head motifs and many other forms of imprint. The handle was missing but points where it was attached can be seen. The chalice-type artefact may have been a wine decanter; or a water jar; an ornate drinking cup (with lid); or possibly an oil/wax light burner. One side had been damaged and holed. In 1998, the current owner of the artefact consulted two antique dealers. In their opinion, they believed the object was extremely old and possibly Egypto-Greek because of the patterns displayed. Today's interest centres on how such an object could have been found in such an inaccessible jungle place where at that time, Europeans would have never travelled or resided. Incidentally, the location where it was found is approximately half-way between Lake Cootharaba north of Noosa and the 'pyramid' site just east of Gympie and near to recently discovered pre-European quarry in the lakes region.

A golden scarab was found on the eastern side of Mothar Mountain east of Gympie in 1959 along with strange inscriptions on a large rock in the same region.

Mr. C. Morton of Gordonvale near Cairns, Queensland, reported in 1960 that at Boogie, an engineer Mr. W. Johnstone while on a bush surveying expedition came across a moss covered slab of what was thought to be stone but was in fact, a slab of cut marble. It was recovered and cleaned to reveal symbols cut into the stone of an unknown origin but in fact resembled Egyptian. Apparently Australian Museums ignored all the photographs but the British Museum identified the inscriptions as possibly Phoenician.

A jade Ankh (the cross of life) was uncovered near Murgon west of Gympie in 1964.

At Ipswich in Queensland during 1965, yielded a cache of hand-forged bronze-copper and iron tools plus pottery and coins dating back more than 2000 years. The artefacts were claimed to be of Egyptian origin.

A carved stone statue (now known as the famous Gympie 'Ape Idol') was unearthed when a field was being ploughed (c. 1966) near the site of the 'Gympie Pyramid'. Two theories is that (a) It could be in fact a replica of the Egyptian god Thoth – the God of Wisdom and Inventor of the Arts of Writing which could be at least 3000 years old and was made from local ironstone. Or (B) It could be one of the missing sacrificial statues for the Chinese God of Longevity buried in the great south land by Cheng Ho during his voyage of 1432(?).This near metre high artefact is currently displayed in a glass case at the Gympie District Historical and Gold Mining Museum.

In the late 1960's, Rockhampton in Central Queensland was credited with the finding of an Egyptian calendar stone and gold scarabs, gold coins and other artefacts estimated to be aged around 2700 BC.

During a dig in 1969 at Cooktown, two gold coins of the Ptolemy period c. 200 BC were discovered.

In 1976, a team of researchers from the Soils Division of the C.S.R.I.O. whilst using a sand auger at Hook Point on Fraser Island, Queensland, recovered at a depth of 2.2 to 2.4 metres, an ancient Celtic lead fishing weight which measured 6cm x 11cm which had a hole in it which indicates an attachment to a fishing net. Extensive studies were carried out and it appears that it was left on the beach somewhere around 1235 – 1400 AD. It is now in the Queensland Museum.

An obelisk stone with a pyramid apex was found in scrubland at Coen in North Queensland in 1978.

In the early 1990's, two elderly men, John Mansell and Ken McKinnon located a small 8 inch (200mm) high carved sandstone/granite head resembling Easter Island art forms in the Tamaree area north-east of Gympie and a short distance from the 'Gympie Pyramid' site. It has not been identified.

A weathered fragment of an old wooden carved object was found in 1997 at the same Gympie site preserved from the weather by a collapsed rock wall. The carving fragment depicts a deity sitting in a squat position holding a portion ledge covering? Intricate line inscriptions can still be seen but cannot be translated. The origin of the artefact again may be Indian/Tamil or Asian/Polynesian. As for age, this has not been determined but it is considered to be several hundred years old and pre-European.

An unidentified hand carved jade-like knife handle depicting a monkey-type creature was uncovered on a quartz-sand hillside east of Gympie where an ancient pre-European/non-Aboriginal site investigation was being carried out in June 1998 by local researchers. The artefact may be of Indian/Tamil or Asian/Polynesian origin.

Aboriginal drawings at the Herberton Aboriginal Gallery in North Queensland, supposedly depict an Egyptian Nile plant.

Magnetic metallic granite artefacts similar to Black Mountain rocks outside Cooktown, North Queensland were supposedly found at the great pyramid in Egypt.

There is a story of a North Queensland cattleman who used to serve his dinner guests off gold plates fashioned from melted down coins found on the station.

On Tuesday 10th February, 2004, the Brisbane 'Courier Mail' has an article (page 13) which reports Phoenician relics being found near Armstrong's Beach south of Sarina. It includes, which is to believed a sceptre of black cast steel, weighing 8 kg with a hammered flat tip at one end. Reports of ancient stone carvings have also been found in the area. Val Osborn and Gil Deem also mention of a headland near Freshwater Point which contains sparkling specks of telluride which is a mix of gold and silver in a seam in the cliff. It appears that this seam was worked extensively a long, long time ago). The full report of this find can be read in the above mentioned article).

Aboriginal legend has it, that a possible Spanish galleon still remains buried with its treasure at the southern end of Stradbroke Island at Eighteen Mile Swamp, 2 miles north of Swan Bay or approximately 5km north of Jumpinpin. An article on this "treasure" can be read in the 'Australian Gold, Gem & Treasure' magazine. December 2006). There is also a web-site that relates to this as well, and can be viewed at: www.stradbrokeislandgalleon.com

NEW SOUTH WALES

Norman Lindsay sketched some drawings which record the fact that the Spanish ships 'Santa Barbara' and 'Saint Y Zabel' took possession of Australia at Bondi, Sydney c.1600 with their sign of the Spanish Cross, ship drawings and names. Mystery ring bolts can be seen at Point Piper rocks.

A 2000 year-old axe blade identified as Middle-Eastern was found in 1960 in inland New South Wales.

In 1969 about eight miles from Sydney, the Gladesville Bridge area produced hand-forged fragments of iron pottery inscribed with symbols and ancient deity representations claimed to be of Egyptian/Phoenician origin.

In 1980, a woman unearthed a carved stone head of the Chinese Goddess Shao Lin – the Protectress of Mariners near Milton, New South Wales. This is on display at Rex Gilroy's Museum in Tamworth, New South Wales.

An amber glass obelisk-shaped pin at least 5000 years was found in a field at Kyogle in Northern New South Wales in 1983.

Two large carved stone heads were excavated close to where the Nepean River adjoins the Hawkesbury River, New South Wales – one of these heads is bearded. It has been suggested, that they may be of Middle-eastern design possibly Phoenician and are extremely old. They appear to be identical to the Phoenician Sun God Mithras and Earth Mother Goddess Demeter which were unearthed by a farmer many years ago from ancient river gravels near Richmond.

A 4th century BC Egyptian figurine and a Roman seal ring (both of which were authenticated) were discovered at The Rocks in Sydney, New South Wales while archaeologists were excavating the site prior to construction of then new ANA Hotel.

Located on the Hawkesbury River in New South Wales found in recent years was another carved stone statue similar to the one found near the 'Gympie Pyramid'. Could this have been the third and final statue from the Chinese Emperor left behind by Cheng Ho?

During building site excavations at Dee Why, Sydney, a perfectly preserved old war mask was found by architect Mr. Neil Durbach of Sydney. Archaeologists have reputedly dated it as being at least 2000 to 3000 years old and of ancient Aztec origins. It is believed that it may have originated from the Inca fortress of Sasay Ituaman in Peru.

In recent times, an onyx rock carved in the form of a scarab was dug up by a man near the Nepean River outside Penrith, New South Wales, which lies on the eastern side of the Blue Mountains, where, at Katoomba some years ago, council workmen dug up from a depth of 18 feet, a small black stone bearing Phoenician letterings believed to spell the name Thuffi.

In early 2004, a lucky Central New South Wales treasure hunter metal detecting around an old house built in the 1880's found a Roman coin (Billon Antoninus of Carinus) minted between 283 AD - 285AD). How did that get there?

VICTORIA

In 2002, a treasure hunter using a metal detector at Port Phillip Bay found a Roman coin depicting Lucinus I c. 307 – 324 AD.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA

An Australian 'Stonehenge' was reportedly discovered on the Nullarbor Plains, South Australia by Mr. Len Beadell while surveying areas for atomic tests at the time.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA

Ancient Aboriginal cave paintings depict European women and bearded men wearing Babylonian-styled hats exist in the Kimberley ranges of N.W. Australia. These can still be seen today.

At the Kimberleys of N.W. Australia in the early 1900's, an Aboriginal clan who had never seen a white man was found to be using ancient Masonic hand signs, words and symbols of Egyptian origin, worshipping the sun and the moon; had a Mother Earth and snake cult spiritually; performed expert ritualised circumcisions of all men; and practiced mummification of the dead in the same manner of the Egyptians.

In 1963 a team of skin divers located the old Dutch ship ‘Batavia’ wrecked on a reef in 1629 in the Alrolhos, a group of islands and reefs 45 miles from Geraldton, Western Australia, which contained a valuable amount of treasure.

Noted Perth skin diver, the late Allan Robinson believed he discovered the remains of an ancient Phoenician trireme (boat) off nearby King Sound, where an unnamed prospector had dug up a 2700 year old Phoenician bronze inscribed plate.

Miners in the north of Australia claimed to have found apparent ancient open-cut copper mines in the Kimberley coastal area where fragments of Palestinian and other pottery have been unearthed. Similar mines dug by Libyans around 2200 years ago were purportedly located in West Irian with nearby ancient rock inscriptions.

On several occasions, people have recovered Spanish coins dated 1618, 1648, 1652, 1653 and 1653 on the beaches about 80 miles north of Perth. Some of these could be from the wreck ‘Gilt Dragon’ which was shipwrecked in the area in April 1656.

NORTHERN TERRITORY

Non-Aboriginal stone hieroglyphics were found at the Olgas and Palm Creek in the Northern Territory.

Aboriginal paintings on Groote Eyland (Island) off the Northern Territory coast clearly depict ancient prows (ships).

Egyptian artefacts and a stone scarab were found in 1960 near the Daly River in the Northern Territory.

OTHER REFERENCES

Mysterious ruins consisting of huge stone blocks were found on New Hannover Island in the Bismarck Archipelago many years ago by a Government Patrol Officer Mr. Ray Sherridan. He also found a large stone idol of a human-bodied, bird-headed deity, and nearby strange symbols that included a chariot. He believed the ruin resembled an Egyptian sun-worship temple.

Found this interesting too:

The mere presence of shipworm damage, accrued usually during voyages of at least several months, suggests that ancient Egyptians actually spent a lot of time at sea.

In 1931 Australian Anthropologist, Sir Grafton Elliot-Smith examined mummified remains in a New Zealand cave. He identified the skull as being that of an ancient Egyptian at least 2000 years old. A gold scarab was also dug up in the district on another occasion. His papers seen to have mysteriously disapeared from The Australian Acadamy of Science Library in Canberra. Maori Evidence is,..there's more..

I believe that ancient cultures probably had many more trading links than we currently are aware of. In the same way the Captain Cook didn't discover Australia. There have been waves of migration over the years. The easy way to sort this all out... which has been done.... is through DNA analysis. So far I haven't heard that testing in Australia indicates that Ancient Egyptians were here.

X-files type archaeology is very exciting but usually true finds are easily put into a correct context by professionals. My first degree was in australian archaeology - Archaeologists are quite competitive for an original find so if there was anything to these stories I am sure we would have heard it by now.

By the way whoever said that they couldn't be aboriginal as they are too complex is wrong. Aboriginals had a highly developed art, oral history and religion. Over fiftythousand years and multiple waves of migration from Asia the art styles can be quite diverse.

Also things like pyramids are found in various ancient cultures around the world all with a traceable organic evolution of their own.

Exactly right. Take a hundred rocks and pile them up. Bingo, you have a roughly pyramidal shape. Roughly flatten the sides and the effect is even more apparent. I don't know why everything pyramid has to come from Egypt.

Here's something that could add a new twist to the petroglyphs

<a href="http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/hercolob...rcolobus_60.htm" target="_blank">http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/hercolob...rcolobus_60.htm</a>

Paralleling this, another answer may lie with a Basalt ‘Sun-Disc’ found in Australia by Marilyn Pye. See image to the right. This Sun-Disc is purported to be a relic from Lemuria! (From Exhibit B: Lost Cities of Ancient Lemuria & the Pacific. Page 114)

Note what looks like a prehistoric sea creature directly below. To me this indicates the Sun-Disc was associated with the Pacific Ocean just as Mu’s Bal Star was.

Could Marilyn Pye’s Lemurian Sun-Disc and James Churchward’s Bal Star be the same sun-like object—Nibiru? It is an intriguing possibility.

You mean the Gympie Pyramid?

Yes, it is indeed well known, it is rather different to the Egyptian Models though. Here is the site on it.

It is more of a terraced hill than the Egyptian models. Still very interesting, Shame one was torn down for development. A little care would have gone a long way.

I was born in Penrith, never heard of that one.

Pre-Colonial Chinese Settlements in Australia: New Evidence at Gympie adds credence to Zheng He's explorationsn

The ethnography of the Gympie area near Fraser Island has been preserved by the Green family who demonstrated a well organized archive of local Aboriginal stories and in-situ evidence that was largely unspoiled when the first wave of Europeans arrived in the 1860's. Brett Green comments: " My great-great grandfather had a propensity to studying ancient cultures and came from England to pursue his dream. He arrived in Maryborough and settled in Gympie during the search for gold. Subsequently, he found a pristine temple and mound complex and noted the ideograms and structures in his sketches." I first visited the Gympie Pyramid site in 1984 and studied the copious notes with Brett for years to come. Recently he brought to my attention the newest find at Gympie:

Denga coins on the site that would be dated to 1385-1400 A.D. >>>

In November 1985, I conducted a three week dig on a mound near Cooktown where Middle Eastern artifacts were found to include a Mycenaean pottery shard and a miniature carved Horus figurine in limestone. The project was under the guidance of an Australian field researcher Marilyn Pye from Sydney. (see photo of Lost Pyramid Story Australia #4)

In December 2004, two New South Wales prospectors searching for gold unearthed unidentified ancient coins amongst rocks in the northeastern quadrant of the Gympie Pyramid site. They were found under 9 inches of soil amidst other metallic debris. Brett Green's organization the Dhamurian historical Research Society was alerted to the discovery by an E-bay auction in late January 2005. The society obtained the coin for their archives and the search for information on the coin began.....
