JAMES COOK Captain James Cook, discoverer of the east coast ot Australia, was one of England's ablest navigators and aa astronomer of note. He set out in the 'Endeavour' in 1768. bound for Tahiti to make observations of the planet Venus. His orders, however, also provided for charting the coasts of New Zealand and searching for 'the Great South Land.' Leaving New Zealand in March, 1770, Cook sighted the south east coast of Australia a few weeks later. He discovered and named Botany Bay, care fully explored and mapped the coast northward, and finally, on Possession Island in Torres Strait, took possession of the whole eastern coast, naming it New South Wales. On a later voyage, he proved that there was no large continent between New Zealand and South America, thus removing an old misconception. On the occasion of the Jubilee of the Common wealth of Australia, the Bank of New South Wales— Australia's pioneer Bank — honours the explorers who opened the way for the development of this j...
