HM Bark Endeavour

I first saw this ship in Fremantle, soon after it had been launched in 1993. Since then I’ve been lucky enough to see it in several different cities. I think it’s lucky anyway. I’m an early-Australian history buff. Captain James Cook sailed on the original Endeavour in the 1780’s when he found Australia. This replica was built in Fremantle in a specially-built shipyard. Since then it has circumnavigated the world twice as well as around Australia. It now sits at the National Maritime Museum in Sydney.
