"MADE IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA"
The Replica of the Endeavour was built in the Port
of Fremantle, Western Australia. Although built
in WA, the Endeavour is based in Sydney [Australian National
Maritime Museum - Darling Harbor].
In 1768 the (British) Navy Board purchased the collier
built in 1765 and renamed it HM Bark Endeavour. It was this vessel
that brought James Cook to Australia for the first time in April
2002 - Fremantle to Whitby
The Endeavour has left the port of Fremantle on 3 Feb. 2002 and is currently sailing towards Hobart Tasmania on her epic journey to Whitby, England. She is arrived in Whitby on June 21 2002 and will not be back in Australia for several years. A web-cam has been fitted on the Endeavour until she leaves the UK.
"Made in WA! "
|The Dutch had been the early
discoverers of the unknown southland. Sighting it for the first time
in 1606. The western coastline
that they chanced upon revealed a dry and bare continent.
Sailing north along the east coast of the continent Cook would eventually
claim the land in name of the British King and name the new British
colony New South Wales.
THE ORIGINAL ENDEAVOUR
The original Endeavour, was sold to the French and named La Liberté. In 1794 she ran aground near Newport, Rhode Island, USA.
