Endeavour off Bateman Bay, 21Apr1770

Endeavour off Bateman Bay, 21Apr1770

Today, I added 21Apr1770 to the Google Earth tour showing Cook’s exploration of the east coast of Australia.

Endeavour sailed northwards from Cape Howe past Cape Dromedary, with Mount Dromedary behind, and on as far as Bateman Bay.

If you would like to follow Cook’s voyage, you will need to install the latest version of Google Earth on your computer; then go to the Captain Cook blog  and click on the links on the right-hand side of the page, under the ‘Google Earth’ heading. After the animation is loaded in Google Earth, you need to expand an entry in the Table of Contents. You will see a ‘Play’ icon which you double-click to start the animation. Don’t forget to enable your speakers to hear the spoken journal.
