Who really discovered Australia?

Ask anyone who discovered Australia and you’ll either be met with a blank stare or a common answer that’s actually incorrect.

And it’s not necessarily our fault. Aussie schools have long proliferated teachings of a false founding father, and many discount the fact that Australia didn’t necessarily need to be discovered – it was already a home to our first nation people.

British funny man Stephen Fry hosts a show called QI, on which he recently asked a panel of comedians if they knew who first discovered Australia.

The answer may surprise you.
