Cook and Banks: Charting the Great Southern Land

  29-Jul-2021      01:00PM
Live Event

Join the Australian National Maritime Museum on an investigation of the fascinating story behind Cook and Banks’ voyage on the HMB Endeavour across the Pacific to the rumoured Great Southern Land. Discover why they embarked on such a momentous three year voyage, where they stopped along the way and what the conditions on-board HMB Endeavour were really like.

Learn more about the significant contributions of the expert navigator and skilled cartographer, Lieutenant James Cook, along with the young botanist Joseph Banks with his party of scientists and artists.

We invite stage 2 students to be part of a discussion about the outcome of the voyage and encourage you to look deeper into how it changed Australian History.

This session can also be run on other days by request. https://dartlearning.org.au/excursion/cook-and-banks-charting-the-great-southern-land/
