Australian Explorers

We have been studying Australian exploration this year in more detail and since we recently returned from exploring ourselves, I thought it appropriate we do a summary of important people and dates in our history of exploration.
 J did a map with a key using some vintage study guide books and this one below...

 Next we will look at the European explorers who mapped out our vast continent.

 I found this cork tile in the cupboard so next we will make flags and mark some areas of exploration.
 H traced a map of Australia and worked out where states and Territories were divided.
Then we built a ship for exploration (not quite the Batavia).
