When the Greek philosopher Plato [427-347 BC] wrote his [uncompleted] immortal tale of the Lost Continent of Atlantis, he unknowingly set in motion a debate among scholars and explorers on its reality which continues today.

The location of Atlantis has been sought in vain from Africa to Europe and the Americas, while the depths of the Atlantic Ocean have also been penetrated without success. Countless books continue to explore the same ground as before with nothing new learnt on the mystery. So why then, another book on Atlantis?

The massive collapsed grand menhir. Now broken in two, it was, thousands of years ago, an important marker for lining up the sunrise on the Summer Solstice. Heather Gilroy points to deep grooves on the [east] face of the menhir, whose purpose it once was to catch and calculate the receding shadow of the rising sun. Photo copyright © Rex Gilroy 2004.

Because reader, this book presents a completely new and refreshing, feasible approach to the subject; for its authors, Rex and Heather Gilroy, dare to challenge all traditional views on the subject, arguing that the hitherto unknown, advanced Stone-Age Australian civilisation of Uru revealed in this book, was the true Mother civilisation of mankind, and the origin of the Atlantis legend of Plato.

The Gilroys present a wealth of new, exciting and previously unknown; hands on, Archaeological evidence, of megalithic temples and fading rock inscriptions of the vanished Lost Civilisation of Uru upon which Rex Gilroy has personally devoted over 40 years research.

Backed up by over 600 photographs and a mass of other evidence, Rex and Heather Gilroy take the reader on a search revealing a lost history of Australia and its near island neighbours.

Many exciting revelations await the reader. Learn how the pyramid form first originated with the Uru in Australia; that Ayers Rock [Uluru] was known to the ancient maritime civilisation of the Old and New Worlds; and that the world’s first flying machines were constructed in Australia by the Uru.

Learn about the traditions of sunken megalithic cities off the Australian East Coast and Coral Sea. Read and discover that Australia, the fabled Lost Southern Paradise, was the true birthplace of world civilisation!'

Huge Boulders

Rex Gilroy examines an alignment of huge granite boulders, arranged on an north-east/south-west axis. This site, which contains other stone arrangements, discovered by the Gilroys is one of several hereabouts which convince them that the Kanangra Boyd plateau was once a major Uruan astronomical centre.
