About the Book

A small community, all as white as himself, he said about three hundred; that they lived in houses enclosed all together within a great wall to defend them from black men; that their
fathers came here 170 years ago, from a distant land across the sea …

Lt. Robert Dale 1832 Western Australia

The story of the Lost White Tribes of Australia by Henry Van Zanden confirms longstanding rumours, never previously proven true, that a community of Dutch-descended people was found … in the early 19th century.

The community was living proof that foreigners had occupied the continent long before the British and if its existence became known the UK’s claim to sovereignty could be
threatened. So it was kept a secret and has remained so to this day.
