Original copperplate engraving for “Voyage of Governor Phillip to Botany Bay; with an Account of the Establishment of the Colonies of Port Jackson & Norfolk Island” printed London by John Stockdale c1789 (with later hand-colour).

Finding Botany Bay unsuitable as a site for the new colony of New South Wales, when he arrived there with the First Fleet, Governor Arthur Phillip proceeded a little north to Port Jackson whose entrance had been noted and named by Cook. Arthur Phillip considered Port Jackson “one of the finest harbours in the world” and finding a supply of fresh water in Sydney Cove, Governor Phillip founded the first English settlement there in 1788.
