Captain James Cook Memorial FountainPrint Page
Captain James Cook Memorial Fountain commemorates the bicentenary of Captain Cook’s discovery of the eastern coast of Australia in 1770.
The Bicentenary of James Cook in Australia was commemorated in Australia in 1970. The British explorer Lieutenant (later Captain) James Cook sailed and charted the East Coast of Australia in 1770, and claimed the Eastern Seaboard of the Continent for the British Crown. This is not considered the official bicentenary of Australia, but rather the mapping of the Eastern coastline.
