MOND VAN DE ENDEAVOUR RIVIER BOTANIE BAAI IN NIEUW ZUID WALES

The Endeavour river map on left was where Cook was holed up for repairs and named the river Endeavour.
Botany Bay he initially named Stingray Bay but decided due to the splendiforous amount of botanical specimans to name Botany Bay.Botany Bay is just south of Sydney
