Caption: Historical map of Australia. A historical map of Australia, first published in 1753. The dotted lines on this map show unexplored areas of coastline that the cartographer has filled in by guesswork. Tasmania (lower centre, formerly Van Diemen's Land) and New Guinea are both shown as being joined to the Australian landmass, although neither is. Part of New Zealand appears in the lower right. This map was made shortly before James Cook's historic voyage to Australia, which led to the British claim of sovereignty in 1770 and subsequent colonization.
