Captain George VancouverPrint Page Print this page

A cairn commemorates the landing of Captain George Vancouver.

In 1791, Captain George Vancouver, on his way to America, came to the southern shore, and found and named King George`s Sound. He landed and examined the country, but saw nothing of any consequence, and, after a short stay, sailed away to the eastward, intending to follow the coast line, but was prevented by baffling winds.
