It was a protectorate from 1884 until 1914 when it fell to Australian forces following the outbreak of the First World War. In 1876, Italian explorer, Luigi D’Albertis, was the first person to successfully attempt the exploration of the Fly Riverand travelling 900 km into the interior, in his steamer, Neva.
