To a land of hopes and dreams The First Fleet To a land of hopes and dreams The First Fleet Author: Sarah Reynolds England 1768, Captain Cook set sail
on his vestal The Endeavor, bound
on a secret mission to discover
the unknown continent named
"Terra Australis". Captain Cook
was well known for his grand
mapping and navigational skills,
which was important for the
safe return back to England. Land Ahoy chosen as the Jail cells were overflowing with convicts and there was no where left to keep them. The solution was to send convicts to Australia to start a new
colony but there was a price to pay. It was 1770, Captain Cook and his crew had sighted land. They planned to stop at
Batemans bay but they could not make it to
shore. The ship continued to travel north
where Cook and his crew finally stepped
foot onto Botany Bay on April 29th. The
land was documented as having suitable
conditions for people to live and sustain
themselves, making Botany Bay an area
for new settlement. Too many criminals and not
enough room Men, women, teenagers and children where convicted as criminals for many reasons. Some may have been convicted of stealing horses, robbing a store or assaulting another person. 11 Ships Set Sail Rough Seas
and Hard Times Captain Arthur Phillip led The
First Fleet from England to
Australia in 1787. The First

the journey which took about 8
months. On board were convicts, their
marine guards (some who had
families) and civil officers. Altogether,
over 1000 people were accounted for. During , 48 convicts and crew died
before reaching land. were cramped and dark, leaving convicts in poor conditions. 8 months is a very long time to be
at sea. Although there were
supplies for the fleets passengers,
many stops needed to be made to restock supplies. In what ways could the journey have gone better? Not Alone The First Australians The convicts were not the only people to inhabit the new found land. Native Australians called
already roamed the land. They were able to sustain themselves by hunting for food and building shelters. How might the Aboriginal people feel about these strange people claiming their land? Many believed the convicts were the first people to inhabit Australia but unknown to the people back in England,
Aboriginals were the first Australians. The beginning of the new
settlement relied on the co-operation of the indigenous people and the new arrivals.
