Acknowledgement of Country
The Australian National Maritime Museum acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora nation as the traditional custodians of the bamal (earth) and badu (waters) on which we work. We also acknowledge all traditional custodians of the land and waters throughout Australia and pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to elders past, present and emerging.
Endeavour Voyage Program 2020 – 2021
When the HMB Endeavour arrived, it changed Australia forever. Now, a new voyage will provide a unique opportunity for all Australians to reflect on, question and mark 250 years since Captain James Cook charted the East Coast of Australia.
The replica HMB Endeavour will circumnavigate Australia, departing Sydney in February 2020 to participate in Geelong’s Wooden Boat Festival, before it sets sail for Tasmania in March. The voyage is expected to end in May 2021 when the ship returns to Sydney after visiting each State and the Northern Territory.
The voyage itinerary provides for the ship to berth or anchor at 38 unique locations around the coastline of Australia and Tasmania, including significant places like Seventeen Seventy, to engage with as many Australians as possible
The voyage complements a broader program planned by the Museum to explore key themes including first contact, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives, science and navigation, encounters and migration.
This aims to be a voyage of reconciliation, which acknowledges the lasting impact the original voyage has had on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and provides a platform for stories both from the ship and from the shore.
Further information on the program will be announced shortly.
