Exploration Maps of Australia

The European exploration of Australia encompassed several waves of seafarers and land explorers. The first documented encounter was that of Dutch navigator Willem Janszoon, in 1606. Dutch seafarers visited the west and north coasts of the continent, as did French explorers. However, the most famous of the explorers was that of Royal Navy Lieutenant (later Captain) James Cook 164 years after the Janszoon's sighting.
