Ancient Egyptians in Australia

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

GympieWhy is Gympie Important?

Because there is a myth/ legend of a pyramid at Gympie that the governement has tried for years to destroy.  Now the area where it is has been hidden so no one can tell whether or not it is a pyramid.

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 made of blue granite, 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 was to 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.

Self-published author of Pyramids in the Pacific: The Unwritten History of Australia and researcher of Australia’s ‘unknown history’, Rex Gilroy believes the site was “the centrepiece of probably the most important Middle East mining colony ever established in Australia”. This, he says, was due to the discovery of relics, rock inscriptions, and traces of “ancient” gold, copper and tin mining at the site.  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 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.” say Gilroy

“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.”

The Phoenicians were the greatest explorers of the ancient world.

“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.”

Royal Scribe and Architect and High Priest of Tehuti (Thoth) Nebmertuf, Service of Nesi (Pharaoh) Amenhotep III, 18th Dynasty, New Kingdom, c. 1385 BCE.

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, proving that the district had once been the site of a Bronze-Age Middle East mining colony.

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

To Read the complete Story watch out for the release in 2010 of the Gympie Pyramid Story by Rex and Heather Gilroy.

  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?
    Greg. 0468 513 766.
    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.

      1. Lake Taupō is a lake in the North Island of New Zealand. It is in the caldera of the Taupō Volcano. The lake is the namesake of the town of Taupō, which sits on a bay in the lake’s north-eastern shore.

  5. Why not ask the indigenous peoples of the area? If they have records going back 40,000 years they would no doubt have interacted with these ancients.

    1. Hi Adrian, I believe they have been asked which is why I know their story says there were visitors for hundreds of years but that they stopped coming around 400 years before white man. I can’t remember where I read that now so I’ll have to research again to find the source. Thanks for visiting Freedom Code. x

    2. Ahh I found something….
      “Archaeological surveys of the site have been conducted by several researchers many concluding that there is no evidence that the site was constructed by ancient explorers. And the most likely explanation is that the terraces were built by Italian wine growers.

      According to local Aboriginal legend the Pyramid goes back centuries but the local tribe makes no claim to it.

      It has even been suggested the pyramid was a place to be avoided according to Aboriginal lore.

      Archaeologist Greg Jeffery’s conducted a preliminary study of the site rejects such simple explanations. One of which simply being that no Italian families lived in the area at the time the Pyramid was originally discovered. He further points to why go to all the effort of terracing a hill when suitable flat fertile agricultural land was readily available. He also notes the majority of terracing appears on the south eastern slope. Ideally the northern slope would be the best aspect for agriculture.

      Jeffery’s points to a possible Polynesian origin to the pyramid mystery, as the seafaring Polynesian race had the ability to reach Australia easily.

      “The Polynesians certainly has a tradition of terracing hills in the construction of forts and for religious purposes (Bellwood 1978) and many examples of these are found through out Polynesia. The god mounds of Tonga and the village fortresses of Rapaiti being just two examples. The stone wall structures on Rapaiti (Heyadahl 1958) bear quite a strong resemblance to the Gympie terraces.”

      “Access to the area from the ocean would have been relatively easy via the Mary River although it is difficult to see why a people would travel so far up river, particularly if they were of seafaring tradition.

      The site is well located for a fortress commanding extensive and uninterrupted views of the surrounding flat terrain. The slopes are steep and easily defended. The unusually shapes boulders on the summit could easily be adapted to make excellent parapets. A permanent source of fresh water is available from a spring on the south west slope and fertile flat land watered by a substantial permanent creek exists in abundance at the base of the ‘pyramid’ to the east and south.

      The discovery of an Oceanic styled statue in a field nearby may lend support to this hypothesis.”

      Local researcher Brett Green has dedicated countless hours trying to get to the bottom of the Pyramid mystery. His thoroughly researched CD ROM documents all of his findings, including debunking some of his own previous discoveries.”

  6. Hi so I’ve been led to believe there was also a pyramid at tin can bay where the army barracks are now situated? That being the case I had a theory and picked a site I believe where it once stood and marked on google earth I then drew a straight line from that site to the pyramid site in Gympie that I have physically seen and been on I then let that line go hoping that it would go to another site in Australia I believe to have been done by the same people and funny enough it goes to Marree where Marree man is I then clicked on distance it says 1400km in a straight line I then drew a straight line from that point in Marree to the Gosford glyphs site that I have also seen and been on I then clicked distance and if I remember right it was 1383km close enough to 1400km ? I then drew a straight line along the coast from the glyph site at karriong Gosford to the tin can bay site which is 800km and when I stood back from my computer it’s the perfect shape of a pyramid . I also believe the place In where the rocks where quarried is mothar mountain at Gympie as there is a gorge there that has indeed been quarried at some point in history and has several rock pools spaced evenly apart going downtown mountain cut out gorge could this have been for shaping the rocks that now sit around the church wall in Gympie? Maybe have a look at all of this I’d be interested in knowing your thoughts thanks.

  7. I would also like to add that on both sites at karriong and Gympie ive found the same triangle holes in big rock or boulders which would indicate these are indeed the same civilisation not to mention that in the Gympie site there is cactus but none anywhere else in Gympie google it it’s a fact and it’s of South American origin very weird

  8. Do you know they now have put the High way right thew the Pyramid site in Gympie after over 20 years trying to stop it it still happened so sad to see what they have done.

    1. Hi Lea, Oh that is sad. I’m glad I got to visit before that happened. Another ancient treasure lost to greedy development.
