Fremantle was Captain of HMS Challenger and was despatched by the Admiralty from the Cape of Good Hope on 20 March 1829. He anchored in Cockburn Sound on 2 May and landed on Garden Island. One week later, he hoisted the British flag on the south head of the mouth of the Swan River and took formal possession in the name of His Majesty King George IV of `all that part of New Holland (Australia) which is not included within the territory of New South Wales`.
