Visiting Hobart Tuesday 12 February 2019.
HMB Endeavour is one of the most historically accurate tall ship replicas in the world and is an ideal way for history to come alive for students.
See what an 18th-century sea voyage was really like and experience the ship as if Cook and his crew have just stepped ashore. Charts are displayed on the table in the great cabin, a copy of astronomer Charles Green's journal is open on his desk and the swinging cot in Cook's cabin is made ready for the next captain's next slumber.
Students will learn how vessels in the age of sail operated and find out how Captain Cook ran the ship and why he was exploring in this part of the world. Crew will be available to answer questions as a piece of living history.
Open for schools:
Tuesday 12 February 9.30am - 2.30pm
