Ancient Egyptians in Australia

Artifacts found in Tutankhamen tomb point to a relationship with Australia long before today's archaeologist admit to visitation.  The Death Mask Tutankhamen was wearing has been analyised  and it turns out that it is made of Gympie Gold.  Gympie is a small town about 100km North of Brisbane, Australia.

What is it?

The Gympie Pyramid is a terraced hill on the outskirts of Gympie in South East Queensland. It purportedly had stone structures on it, built before modern European settlement. It has been shrouded in mystery and controversy ever since.
Who built it?

To this day, nobody really knows. There have been many theories, from Phoenicians to the Spanish, and from Aliens to modern Italian Winemakers.
An in depth look at all facets of this intriguing story is available on Brett Green's CD e-book: "The Gympie Pyramid Mysteries" Hopefully, our ongoing research might just determine the answer to this perplexing question....

What is happening with it?

In May 2005 the property on which the Gympie Pyramid is situated, was purchased by a friend of the Dhamurian Society, with the purpose of investigating this enigmatic site fully.
The area will undergo thorough testing using various methods. The Dhamurian Society currently has among it's members and associates, Geologists, Archaeologists, Geo-Physicists and many talented researchers. It is hoped that an in depth investigation will shed some light on this mysterious site, and perhaps give some answers to the questions of who built it and why.


The Mysterious Gympie Pyramid.

All the removable inscribed stones found by the Gilroys on the pyramid were removed for safekeeping and research. All other inscribed stones recovered in the Gympie, Tin Can Bay and Maryborough areas now in authors possession.

IT seems strange that,

despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, conservative scholars in Australia cannot bring themselves to accept that maritime peoples of the ancient world were familiar with our shores not hundreds, but thousands of years before the age of Magellan. They feel embarrassed every time some ‘impossible’ pyramids, Old World rock inscription or ther relic is found in Australia to refute their outdated arguments. Their embarrassment must be growing, not only from the vast amount of relics described in this book, but also from all the other evidence coming to light worldwide, through the activities of dedicated cultural diffusionists like the Gilroys!

New Zealand also goes ignored. This book shows how wrong they are. The fact is, there is enough evidence of ancient civilisation contacts with Australia and its island neighbours to rival, even surpass the pre-Columbian discovery and colonisation of the Americas [which of course includes the Uru migrations there from Australia/New Zealand!]. For many years before I met my wife Heather [1972] I had struggled on alone, writing newspaper articles, and sometimes doing radio interviews about Australia’s “hidden history”, trying to make Australians aware of their

unknown past, of Stone-Age races which had preceded our Aborigines to this continent before the Dutch mariners or Lieutenant James Cook RN.

My lone field searches for ancient rock inscriptions were mostly unsuccessful to begin with and when I did begin discovering these, my efforts when published, were met with derision from university historians and archaeologists who did not even think it necessary to give me the decency of an unbiased examination of my finds. Yet, as I was to find in the writings of the ancients, there were many references to a Great Southern landmass located in the southernmost region of the world, often described as the “Lost Paradise” of mankind and a land of vast natural wealth.

Even here I found obstacles, from biased academics who would phone radio stations and newspaper offices, persuading gullible journalists not to interview or publish my findings, often ‘impressing’ them with a list of their degrees, and ‘exposing’ my amateur status. In those early days of my struggle the growing amount of finds being made by people around Australia, particularly of ancient Egyptian, Phoenician, Libyan, Celtic and other Bronze-Age period relics and rock inscriptions, convinced me that these peoples were more than mere casual visitors to Australia, and that the search for minerals, precious stones and other important commodities had to have been their purpose in coming here.

The emphasis in my researches thus turned from investigating scattered rock inscriptions and odd relics to the uncovering of colonies, which I rightly believed would have been established in mineral-rich regions. In 1972 I met my wife Heather and we soon became a ‘team’ intent upon searching for and uncovering evidence of colonisation of this land, by the peoples of the ancient world. Our first big breakthrough came in 1975.

Earlier in 1970, I had been sent a photograph of a strange ironstone image, by Mr Dal K. Berry of Gympie, in southeast Queensland. Mr Berry, a farmer, had been ploughing his field one day in 1966, when he unearthed the fragmented remains of what he realised to be an idol.

After cementing it together he found it to be in the form of a 72cm tall by 120cm diameter squatting ape. He also found that he had torn up sandstone blocks which had formed a base upon which the idol had stood. Dal Berry soon afterwards stored the relic away in his shed. However, after reading an article by me on ancient civilisation contacts with Queensland, he sent me the photograph in 1970.

It was not until October 1975 that, together with Heather, I was able to make the trip to Gympie. Upon inspecting the relic I realised it to be a crude depiction of Thoth, the God of Writing and Knowledge of ancient Egypt in Ape form. Carved between the squatting legs of the image was the hieroglyph of the papyrus flower – Thoth’s symbol as the God of Writing – while on the back were several weathered hieroglyphs of what we now know today to be a mixed Egypto-Phoenician script. Thoth, I knew, had been depicted as an ape prior to around 1000 BC, when he became an Ibis-headed, human-bodied deity who recorded the judgement of the dead in Amenti, the afterworld.

Gympie was first officially settled in the 1840s and 50s, during which time farmers began turning up some remarkable finds; mystery rock inscriptions, ancient tools of copper and bronze, as well as pottery of ancient Middle-East origin. It was enough for many of the inhabitants to suggest that British colonists were not the first people to settle this district. Gympie came to prominence in 1867, when James Nash scooped up some gold nuggets from a dry creek bed, quickly turning the district into Queensland’s most famous goldfield. By 1909 fifty-one companies were mining gold around the area.

The region is also rich in copper and tin, as well as jasper, agate and other gemstones. Prospectors, exploring the nearby forest-covered mountains and gullies made some startling discoveries in the years following James Nash’s gold strike. Remains of ancient open-cut gold and copper mining operations were uncovered outside Gympie and also in the Murgon district further west. Large basalt adzes were found beside quartz reefs where they had been used to pound away at the gold-bearing quartz..

At these sites were sometimes found various implements of copper and bronze, later identified as being of ancient Middle-East origin. Somewhere in these jungle-covered hills a pre-European water-race built of massive stone blocks was discovered, but the location is now lost. The number of relics, rock inscriptions and traces of extensive gold, copper and tin mining hereabouts, as well as extensive open-cut agate mining operations we discovered between Gympie and Murgon, and numerous ancient stoneworks that we began turning up in the region, convinced Heather and I that the district had once been the site of a Bronze-Age Middle East mining colony.

To assist us in our pyramid investigations, two locals, Mr Terry and Mrs Dian Kay, kindly arranged a light aircraft flight over the area for an aerial inspection, enabling us to photograph the structure from above, and to follow the former course of the harbour eastwards to Tin Can Bay.

  1. In the last several years I had become very interested in ancient Egypt and was surprised to learn that they were living and mining throughout my region here in S. E Queensland. This site is very informing. Well done!

    1. Hi Ian, Yes it is very interesting. Graham Hancock was here a few months ago looking at both the Gympie region and the Kariong Glyphs. I expect a book to come out soon on the subject- Maybe (Hopefully!!)

      1. Hi FC, that is nice to know that the great Graham Hancock visited our region recently. With his knowledge too I am sure he would be able to fill in some of the missing pieces to the puzzle?

      2. Cavnpiatitg story, with enough gaps left out to trigger my fantasy. I have found more and more, that I enjoy stories not telling everything more enjoyable. Thank you

  2. How does this relate to First Nations people who have inhabited this continent for nearly 60,000 years. Does this predate them? In your article you only mention European occupation.

  3. I have a theory. I have been researching connections. I lived in PNG with the Hulis. Since prince Phillip died he was mentioned as being in Hela province. A friend’s wife saw me wearing a Huli Polo Shirt. She remembered 2 his being flown to London to see the Queen. I found a photo of QE2 looking at a poster in London of the Huli men.
    I then recalled we had 2 Huli men as mascots for our Hela Wigmen Football team and I was told they had met QE2. I took a photo of his paperwork around his neck of the trip. I also found a photo of African tribes men in similar native dress also another trip of grass people the same as in Hela. There was a photo of tribe women who offer sex to visitors same as natives in PNG Trobin Islands. There is a natural stone sphinx in Western Australia same as the man made in egypt. When Gondwana Land shifted i believe africa was on the border of the two. Could the culture have survived that long?

    I also have a hand carved walking stick of alien half people. From the Trobin islands.

  4. I also worked for Arrow Energy preparing exploration sites for LNG gas production. We would drill down 4oo to 1000 meters to get to the coal seams. Coal seams are forests that contained hydrocarbons and then covered in layers of dirt and rocks. We do core samples and occasionally bring up animal bones. This was in a movie about the BP Drilling rig catastrophe Deep Horizon.. I told a Docter but the movie producers must have made a note it was fiction for the movie but real in my experience.
    Never tell a Psychiatrist that or you’re in a bit of trouble. I have been to Lake Taupo where the Pyramid is and also there is one at Mt Cootha as I have been told but a friend saw Old Bricks.
