The land around Port Jackson was occupied at the time of European discovery and colonisation by various tribes including the [[Gadigal]], [[Cammeraygal]], [[Eora]] and [[Wangal]] peoples. The Gadigal people are said to have occupied the land stretching along the south side of Port Jackson from what is now South Head, in an arc west through to [[Petersham, New South Wales|Petersham]]. The Cammeraygal lived on the northern side of the harbour. The area along the southern banks of the [[Parramatta River]], west of Petersham to [[Rose Hill, New South Wales|Rose Hill]], was reported to belong to the Wanegal. The Eora people lived on the southern side of the harbour, close to where the First Fleet settled.
 
 
 
The first recorded European discovery of Sydney Harbour, was by Lt [[James Cook]] in 1770 - Cook named the inlet after Sir [[Sir George Duckett, 1st Baronet|George Jackson]], (one of the [[Lord Commissioner]]s of the British [[Admiralty]], and [[Judge Advocate of the Fleet]]).<ref name="Courier1878">{{cite news| last =McDermott |first =Peter Joseph |coauthors = |title =Pacific Exploration | work =The Brisbane Courier | pages =5 | publisher =Brisbane Newspaper Company Ltd | date =1878-11-06 | url =http://ndpbeta.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/1376345?searchTerm=James+Cook | accessdate =2008-11-05 }}</ref> His [[ship's log]] notation states "at noon we where...about 2 or 3 miles from the land and abrest of a bay or harbour within there appeared to be a safe anchorage which I called Port Jackson."
