Exactly 250 years ago today...

Recommended Posts

The land adjacent to Botany Bay was settled for many thousands of years by the Tharawal and Eora peoples and their associated clans. On 29 April 1770, Botany Bay was the site of James Cook's first landing of HMS Endeavour on the land mass of Australia.

That is the spot that a chartered DC3, with a similar name, crashed a few years ago.

Uuuh, I did not know that. I just hit the esc button, which worked fine.
