The story of HMS Endeavour

Flashback to September 1769, this vintage and classic HMS Endeavour Small ship model reminds you of when she anchored off New Zealand and became the first European vessel to reach the islands since Abel Tasman's Heemskerck 127 years earlier.. Bringing the history vibe home with our historical gunboat, longboat and battle ship model collections.

In 1768 Lieutenant James Cook, Royal Navy, set sail on HMS Endeavour on a voyage of exploration and scientific investigation and through his journeys. Cook was considered to be one of the greatest explorers. In 1770 Cook reached New Zealand where he circumnavigated and completely charted the north and south islands before continuing west. In April, he sighted the east coast of Australia and sailed north along the coast before anchoring in what he named Botany Bay. He then continued north to Cape York and on to Jakarta and Indonesia. During the four months voyage along the coast Cook charted the coastline from Victoria to Queensland and proclaimed the eastern part of the continent for Great Britain. Cook was the first person to accurately chart a substantial part of the coastline of Australia and to fix the continent in relation to known waters.
