George Vancouver

Discovery Bay ELC has named our room after the famous British explorer, George Vancouver.

The Age of Discovery or Age of Exploration was a period from the early 15th century that continued into the early 17th century, during which European ships travelled around the world to search for new trading routes and partners. The Age of Discovery marked the beginning of globalisation.

George Vancouver was a navigator who led several exploratory journeys around the world. He also served with Captain James Cook on his journeys around the Pacific ocean including onboard the HMS Resolution for which the first sighting of Australia was recorded and the HMS Discovery that made the discovery of Hawaii. Upon his return he set out on a four and a half year expedition to map out the north west coast of America, Alaska, Hawaii and the southwest coast of Australia This was the longest mapping expedition ever undertaken.
