Egyptian Hieroglyphs in NSW Australia

Egyptian Hieroglyphs in NSW Australia

 by Sonia van Gelder

Located one hundred kilometres north of Sydney in the tranquil setting of a National Park forest, exists over 300 ancient hieroglyphic carvings in the local sandstone.   

The carvings are located between two flat sandstone walls approximately four metres high with a walkway in between that is just over 1 metre wide.  Well concealed, it is accessible only by a small chute from above or below the chasm.  Sightings of the mysterious carvings are recorded as far back as the early 1900s .

Much controversy has taken place over the years as to their authenticity.  Many have claimed them to be a hoax, an apparent prank orchestrated by a  group of NSW University students.  Some say an ex World War II digger carved them after returning home from service in Egypt.  

The glyphs are concealed in bush, and accessible only through a small rock chute at a distance of over 1 kilometre from the park's entrance.  The symbols are carved into the sandstone up to  4.5 meters in height.   If they are modern day forgeries, it would entail carrying a ladder or scaffold this distance into the bush, manoeuvring it through the small entrance to access the rock face

Although, many a researcher and skeptic have argued that the glyphs are forgeries,  what has been missed, is the fact that most Egyptologists are all trained to read Middle Egyptian and upward. 

The classic Egyptian dictionaries deal with Middle Egyptian glyphs only.  Very few people in the world can read and translate the earlier styled symbols.   Many of the symbols  seem to be a mixture of late, middle and early dynastic periods, some of which are an extremely ancient archaic style.   

Similarities with ancient symbols are found around the globe.

Many of these too are thought to be unauthentic, however the synchronicity of matching symbols found in the varied corners of the earth is certainly evidence worthy of further investigation.     Many are well known ancient styles which include, Hungarian Runic, Paleo Sanskrit, Phoenician, Sumerian, Syriac, Ancient Greek, Mayan and Indus Valley to name a few.

Ray Johnson spent some years researching the area and is credited with translating extremely ancient texts for the Museum of Antiquities in Cairo, he was successful in documenting and translating both of the walls.   According to Ray Johnson, the hieroglyphs tell the story of early Egyptian explorers, injured and stranded, in Ancient Australia.   His translation tells the story of a tragic voyage resulting in the unfortunate death of their expedition leader - 'Lord Nefer-ti-ru (a son of Khufu)' and of his traditional burial tomb nearby.

There are three cartouches on the walls which record the name of ‘RA JEDEF’ as reigning King of Upper and Lower Egypt, the son of KHUFU who in turn is the son of ‘SNEFERU’.    The expedition’s leader is described as the King’s son, "Nefer-ti-ru'” who came to grief a long way from home.  If true, this would date the glyphs to approximately 4000 years ago. 

Earlier this year, I sent a copy of my own scribed (approx 300) symbols of the walls to associates in Egypt Mohamed Ibrahim and Yousef Awyan , specialists in reading late, middle and early dynastic hieroglyphic symbols.    I believe they are not far off releasing their translation into the public sector in the coming weeks.  I have not yet heard the translation, however what they have shared is all very positive in proving their authenticity.   I look forward to hearing what they have come up with.

 Australia  is a land with only a recent European immigration history.  The traditional owners of this land preserve knowledge dating back over fifty thousand years, encompassing a vast history and stewardship of Australia, .   Unfortunately, as is the case with most of the country (especially the east coast), much ancient knowledge has been lost in just over two hundred  years of colonisation since Captain Cook’s arrival.   Systematic genocide , wiping out whole tribes.  The minority that survived, were shipped off to missionary camps and in many cases, the children removed from their families, thus halting much of the ancient wisdom, which was for thousands of years prior, handed down orally through the families.    This is sadly the case with the Central Coast area, and the original Darkinjung tribe.    

A friend, mentor and respected initiated elder from the area  Aunty Beve, told me that the glyphs were absolutely authentic, yet they were not aboriginal, however the meaning of the glyphs, and the knowledge of whom put them there was unknown,  lost in the time of her ancient ancestors.

 In her introduction to the Darkinung Community – Standing Strong Exhibition, held at Gosford Regional Gallery in 2003, Associate Professor Nerida Blair, observed, “It is story seen in the country that we are surrounded by. History is about finding the voices from many different perspectives and identifying the layers.” (Blair, 2003) 


Is it possible that the Egyptians were sailing the high seas, long before Christopher Columbus?   The misconception that people at the time of Columbus believed the world was flat was listed by Britain's Historical Society, as the second most common error in history.      Many ancient maps have come to the surface with the help of our modern day internet and social networks from around the globe.  

It is already well known that Dutch explorer Abel Tasman had sailed to our shores more than a century before Captain Cook.      There is significant evidence that ancient sea farers knew about the Great Southern Land.   

The first records of European mariners sailing into 'Australian' waters occurs around 1606, and includes their observations of the land known as Terra Australis Incognita (unknown southern land). The first ship and crew to chart the Australian coast and meet with Aboriginal people was the Duyfken captained by Dutchman, Willem Janszoon.

There are indications Egyptians inhabited the southern land thousands of years ago. Sumerian and Maya descriptions of a lost land in the ocean are said to have been found. On Crate's map of the world, Australia is named 'Antoecie' as it is on the Greek map by Eratosthenese in 239 BC.

At times, the ancient Egyptians called Punt Ta Netjer, meaning “God’s Land”. This referred to the fact that it was among the regions of the Sun God, that is, the regions located in the direction of the sunrise, to the east of Egypt. These eastern region resources included products used in temples, most notably incense.

Excavations at an ancient Egyptian shipyard have unearthed remains of the world's oldest seafaring ships.  The 4,000 year old timbers were found alongside equally ancient cargo boxes, anchors, coils of rope and other naval materials just as old, at what archaeologists are calling a kind of ancient military administration site.  The massive complex, made up of six manmade caves, is located at Wadi Gawasis, a small desert bluff on the Red Sea near the modern city of Port Safaga.  Hieroglyphs inscribed on some of the cargo boxes indicate that many came from a single origin: the almost mythical city of Punt.  – Heather Whipps, Live Science

A relief at the temple of the female pharaoh Hatshepsut in Luxor, Egypt, carved ca. 1480 B.C., shows a merchant ship on a trading expedition.  The scenes carved into a wall of the ancient Egyptian temple at Deir el-Bahri tell of a remarkable sea voyage. A fleet of cargo ships bearing exotic plants, animals, and precious incense navigates through high-crested waves on a journey from a mysterious land known as Punt - “The Land of God."

The oldest known contacts are dated to the second half of the Old Kingdom, but it is not unlikely that there were older contacts as well. Apparently, the Egyptians always appear to have known the way to Punt, even after five centuries without contact between the 12th and the 18th Dynasty.   http://www.ancient-egypt.org/index.html
Australia is a very old country; it is big and it is isolated from ALL other countries now by water, although many thousands of years ago, it may not have been the case. It has been suggested that there once was a land bridge between Australia and Asia. It also has an abundance of gold  and minerals.   If the land of Punt is not Australia itself, there is good reason to believe it was a land somewhere in the Pacific that was visited by the Egyptians.   If this is the case, no doubt the ancient seafarers had maps of the ancient land masses of the Pacific  in their possession.

Is it possible that this particular voyage was done after a cessation of trips made due to land mass changes, with the seafarers knowing of the ancient land, but the old maps not being the best navigational guide?

The above map was found in a pre-dynastic tomb in Hierakonopolis in Egypt.

Sinim was the ancient Hebrew name for a mysterious southern continent, mentioned in the Old Testament. The Phoenician name for it was Ophir, a "great south land of gold" where gold was obtained to build Soloman’s temple. The Egyptians called it "the land of Punt."  

(1 Kings 9:26-28 26) King Solomon also built a fleet of ships in Ezion-geber, which is near Eloth [now Eilat] on the shore of the Red Sea, in the land of Edom. (27) And Hiram sent his servants with the fleet, sailors who knew the sea, along with the servants of Solomon. (28) And they went to Ophir, and took four hundred and twenty talents of gold from there, and brought it to King Solomon.

The writings of Jewish historian Josephus (first century AD), offered his explanation of the Biblical story of Solomon and Hiram's joint trade mission to the distant land of Ophir. In his Antiquities of the Jews, he said the voyages which began from the Red Sea port of Ezion-geber (near Israel) for the island of Chryse -  far to the east in the Indian Ocean. Trade voyages took three years to complete according to the Old Testament. 

Immanuel Velikovsky in his 1950s book Worlds in Collision proposes that many myths and traditions of ancient peoples and cultures are based on actual events: worldwide global catastrophes of a celestial origin, which had a profound effect on the lives, beliefs and writings of early mankind.  His book Earth in Upheaval presents documentation of many global catastrophes in prehistorical and more recent time periods, based on the evidence of stone and bone. This evidence from the natural sciences indicate that these great disturbances which rocked our world were caused by forces outside the Earth itself and responsible for the rise and fall of many landmasses across the globe.

According to a Doctor of Indian Archeology (Dr. K.C. Norial)  an undertaken Archeological Survey of India says ‘There is no doubt, the ancient city of Dwarka on the west coast of India was once a very flourishing port city, which enjoyed India/Arab trade.  The coastal areas of this ancient land mass were submerged by rising sea waters in approx 3067BC. Astrological events are recorded in the Mahabarata including those of two comets.  

The marine archeologists in India have found enough proof to assert that Mahabharata is not a myth, but 'History'.  Old trade route maps indicate a route from Egypt via the Red Sea, sailing east to the ancient port of Dwarka, then on further south east of India.   Indian and Australian Aboriginal mythology is believed to go further back than development of most of the civilizations around the world… This map depicts South East Asia prior to last Ice Age 12,000 – 8000 BC.

A submission report written to the NSW Dept of Lands involving an area in Northern NSW  quotes the following  -'stands a mound which appears not to belong… Fred Fordham was a teacher at the Brunswick Heads Primary school and had heard the local tales that a grand ceremonial ground existed in the area where aborigines gathered from far and wide…
Fred sent his notes and drawings and the answers were returned….. most of this correspondence and original work still exists in the valley…The answers were there. The twisting path was a snake, a kangaroo and an emu were represented, the sun was present, plus a host of others ceremonial symbols. There was only one thing wrong, which didn’t seem to worry Fred. The entire layout, names and all were ancient Egyptology – the sun god Ra and many others appeared. Fred could [still] get no backing and the second world war made people think of other things…'

Prof. Howard Carter discovered a set of golden boomerangs in the tomb of King Tutankhamen in Egypt in 1922. One of these boomerangs, found in a box with several wooden ones, is carved of ivory and capped in gold.  It would be too delicate for frequent use, and the flat terminal is atypical for a boomerang. The inscription refers to Tutankhamun as "the God, Lord of the Two Lands, 'Ra is the Lord of Manifestations', Beloved of Ptah, Who is South of his Wall."

Gympie,   a goldmine in Australia that was continuously worked for 60 years between 1867 and 1927, may have ancient connections to Egypt. Hard rock production totalled 116 tons of gold and it is rumoured that the gold in the funeral mask of Tutankhamen can be traced to Gympie.  Then there is also the mysterious Gympie Pyramid which I will expand  on in another article altogether.

Many ancient artifacts, stone carvings, Egyptian coins, old shipwrecks including Spanish, Dutch and Chinese ships have been uncovered here in Australia.   Some of these finds have been either criticised or silenced, as they are not in keeping with the status quo regarding pre Cook history.   With the evidence mounting up, it seems absolutely plausible that the ancient Egyptians, Phonecians, Spanish and others were visiting our shores hundreds, if not thousands of years ago
