Botany Bay - A New World...

This sign is located in Botany Bay near Sydney and speaks for itself really!
Captain James Cook mapped the whole east coast of Austraila in 1770 and claimed the area for the British Empire. He also helped  to give names to many places up the coast, including Cooktown, Botany Bay and the interesting Seventeen Seventy (1770).
If you are interested in the full history lesson it can be found here - Captain Cook - Wikipedia
For me it was a reminder of how young this country is...
