About the event

Captain James Cook mapped the east coast of Australia aboard the Endeavour in 1770. 2020 marks 250 years since that historic voyage. Through a series of curated banners we examine this event and its legacy, incorporating perspectives both of those aboard the Endeavour and the Indigenous inhabitants watching it from the shore.
