Abstract

[Extract] By 1750 Dutch encounters with Australia, going back to the initial discovery of the north coast of Australia in 1606 by Willern Janszoon, had yielded maps of the continent's west coast and part of the southern coast, a region marked on European maps as New Holland. In addition, the Dutchman Abel Tasman had mapped the southern coast of Tasmania and a small section of the west coast of New Zealand during voyages in 1642 and 1644.
