1770

We’re in 1770, it’s where Captain Cook landed in Australia on his ship, the Endeavour, in May 1770! When Cook landed, he was actually only a Lieutenant, not a Captain, he was promoted to a captain when he returned to England. At the top of the beach there was a memorial to Captain Cooks landing. 1770 was actually called Round Hill until 1970, the 200th anniversary of Cooks landing. We went down to the beach where Cook landed, this was his second time landing on Australian soil, the first time was in Botany Bay earlier in the year.

The names around the point where he landed are all associated with the landing. Banks was the funder of the trip.
