             3.1 Aboriginal people were living in Australia for at least 50,000 years before the European Settlers arrived, their entire way of life was perfectly suited to the land in which they lived, and they enjoyed a rich culture.
             3.2 The Europeans invaded the country and took over by appointing a Government making new laws and leasing or setting the land for farming and mining. Within the first few decades of the arrival of Europeans, the life of many aboriginal Australians was being rapidly changed. The settlers thought the indigenous people to be ignorant and their habitat primitive. The expansion of European occupation created conflict all along the way. The invasion of the land created battles with many being murdered. The population decreased from 353,000-80,000 in 1788. According to the Europeans law the land belonged to Britain.
