Abstract

As Queensland and Western Australia receive the archaeological attention which they deserve, during this decade, it is likely that Australian prehistory will be rewritten drastically. Historic settlement populated southeastern Australia and made it the focus of European urbanised development, but there is no reason why the evidence for northern prehistory should not redress this geographic imbalance. Queensland's immensely long and ecologically rich coastline offers diverse possibilities for research, while the hints of a Pleistocene human presence across a range of interior habitats hold equal potential.
