People have lived here since bugarrigarra (the time before time) when Galaloong, travelled down the Peninsula, naming places and giving law. From an archeological perspective the first visitors, around 50,000 years ago did not encounter a Peninsula but an inland, dome shaped mountain rising some 210- 290 meters above sea level. Then it was cooler and wetter and sea levels were lower. The islands at the top of what is now King Sound would then have been a ridge of hills. This means the Fitzroy River flowed into a vast freshwater lake. Nyulnyulan, the language group of the area is spoken across the Peninsula and up the banks of the Fitzroy River.
