Cape Brugieres, in the Dampier archipelago, off the Burrup Peninsula in Western Australia is the first Aboriginal underwater archeological site that has been found. Many stone tools have been found on the seabed, as well as a freshwater spring. Scientists think that people lived here until the sea submerged this area between 18,000 and 7,000 years ago.
Traditional owners everywhere in Australia know many stories about Sea Country. Many more sites that people once used to live at and that are now under the sea could be found in the future.
