Australia’s maritime history

When did the Duyfken set sail? Who was Williem Jansz? What was Abel Tasman’s monumental theory about Australia? Which accidental meeting led to the naming of Encounter Bay, South Australia? All of these questions and many more are answered in Australia on the Map (1606–2006) – an exciting blackline master resource that brings Australia’s maritime history to life!

High-interest and informative activities will enhance the students’ understanding and appreciation of the nations who contributed to Australia’s maritime history. The adventures of the French, Dutch and British navigators who charted the coastline and named many locations are explored. Shipwrecks, living conditions on the ships, desolate lands, conflicts and stowaways are just some of the topics the activities cover.

Follow the British and the French as they race to map the southern coast. Discover the nations who almost colonised Australia and learn more about the nation that succeeded. Consider the colossal changes to lifestyle and culture the original inhabitants of the land faced.
