Ship and Shore: The history and legacy of Cook's first Voyage

Exhibition
Free
Online

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.
