 Site Information
 History and Use
In 1770, Captain James Cook arrived in Australia and decided that what is now Botany Bay, would be a good place to establish the first settlement. However, when the first settlers arrived in 1788, they chose Port Jackson as a better harbour and this became the site of modern day Sydney. Prior to Cookâ€™s arrival, Australia had been inhabited by Indigenous Australians for at least 40,000 years.
