Actually it is the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet not Captain Cook discovering Australia.
On 13 May 1787 a fleet of 11 ships, which came to be known as the First Fleet, was sent by the British Admiralty from England to Australia. Under the command of Captain Arthur Phillip, the fleet sought to establish a penal colony at Botany Bay on the coast of New South Wales, which had been explored and claimed by Lieutenant James Cook in 1770. The settlement was seen as necessary because of the loss of the Thirteen Colonies in North America.<SUP id=cite_ref-8 class=reference></SUP> The Fleet arrived between 18 and 20 January 1788, but it was immediately apparent that Botany Bay was unsuitable.
They later found Sydney Cove and the fleet moved from Botany Bay to there on January 26th.
Thanks Hemiman!!! Great australia day celebrations: we went to Darling harbor in Sydney.
Excellent fireworks at night and great entertainment all day. Best weekend We've had for a long time!
GREAT FOLKS!! I've never been treated better as a visitor in any other country.
We celebrated Australia day at Trader Sams in Anaheim with two other travelling Aussies and a HAMBer and his partner. Not a single fosters in sight!
