Captain James Cook ExpeditionPrint Page Print this page

A monument commemorates the place where Captain James Cook first attempted a landing in 1770.

The original memorial was erected by the Rotary Club of Bulli in 1970 and consisted of a granite tablet on a brick wall. It has now been upgraded with a sandstone capping and ceramic tiles, designed and created by Wombarra’s Michael Keighery. 

Captain James Cook claimed the whole of the east coast of Australia for Great Britain on 22 August 1770, naming eastern Australia, 'New South Wales.'
