Why did the great journeys of explorers occur? This excursion tells tale of both sides of Australian history, located where it all began: when the majestic HMAS Endeavour landed in 1770. Explore the beginning of British colonisation, delve deep into European exploration of Australia, and experience what life was like during the expedition of James Cook and his crew. Students have the opportunity to dress up in colonial costumes and re-enact the journey with their classmates, walk the EXACT footprints of Captain James Cook, Sir Joseph Banks and their crew when they first arrived in Botany Bay, and reflect on the effects colonization has had on Aboriginal culture. Students will be able to experience the incredible coastal landscape and bushlands, and imagine what it was like to live here before colonization.
