A tiny drawing of a kangaroo curled in the letters of a 16th-century Portuguese manuscript could rewrite Australian history.

The document, acquired by Les Enluminures Gallery in New York, shows a sketch of an apparent kangaroo (''canguru'' in Portuguese) nestled in its text and is dated between 1580 and 1620. It has led researchers to believe images of the marsupial were already being circulated by the time the Dutch ship Duyfken - long thought to have been the first European vessel to visit Australia - landed in 1606.

Portugal was extremely secretive about her trade routes during this period, explaining why their presence there wasn't widely known.

The pocket-sized manuscript, known as a processional, contains text and music for a liturgical procession and is inscribed with the name Caterina de Carvalho, believed to be a nun from Caldas da Rainha in western Portugal.

I think it could be equal evidence that the Portuguese discovered Texas -- it looks to me like a nine-banded armadillo squatting behind some bushes to take a dump ...

Our version is the "horny toad," and yes, that's a horrible name for more reasons than one.

Also known as the "horned frog" or, more properly, "horned lizard."

But we don't get too caught up on technicalities:

And the Ming Dynasty had some of our kangaroos in their zoos according to tapestries from the time, And it is a better likeness than the OP drawing

I know it says Europeans But I am going to Suggest the first ones here were Pirates  pirat  pirat  pirat  and/or dead (much of the north coast is gonna be dead, some Japanese landed in world war 2 and we didn't know till the 1970's when we found their bones only a kilometre of the coast  :::grouch:: )

Dirk Harthog the official First European http://www.sharkbay.org/default.aspx?WebPageID=175 but that was a accident and much further south. Still the place isn't called 'SHARK bay' because it's a good place to go swimming.   affraid  affraid  affraid 

Capitan Cook had to go more than half way down the east coast before finding what he though could possibly be a colony site. (now Sydney) And the East Coast is more sheltered from the desert By the great dividing range (that's why most of us live here and the rest is almost empty). Some parts of the west coast the Desert almost meets the sea.
