Australian National Maritime Museum Announces Captain Cook replica HMB Endeavour to sail around Australia

Sail into history with the Australian National Maritime Museum as HMB Endeavour embarks on its first ever circumnavigation of Australia!

In April 2011, the magnificent replica of James Cook’s HM Bark Endeavour will undertake an historic circumnavigation of Australia. Built as a gift to the Australian people, Endeavour will follow in the wake of our earliest European explorers, visiting major and regional ports right across Australia.

The voyage will commence in Sydney and trace James Cook’s original voyage 240 years when he became the first to chart the east coast of Australia in 1770. From Queensland Endeavour will sail across the Gulf of Carpentaria and the Top End to Darwin, before sailing into the Indian Ocean and along the Western Australian coast to Fremantle. The voyage will then see Endeavour cross the Great Australian Bight taking in South Australia and continuing around Tasmania, before crossing the Bass Strait to Victoria and returning home to Sydney by May 2012.
