Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770. Lieutenant James Cook was the first European known to have explored the more habitable east coast. Cook had been sent to chart the transit of Venus from Tahiti, but he also charted much of the Australian and New Zealand coastlines. He reached New Zealand in October 1769, and mapped its coast. On 19 April 1770, the crew of the Endeavour sighted the east coast of Australia and ten days later landed in Botany Bay.

Captain James Cook November 1728 – 14 February was a British explorer, navigator, cartographer, and captain in the Royal Navy.
