Captain James Cook: British Explorer, Navigator, Cartographer & Captain of the British Royal Navy. As the captain on three voyages of discovery in the late eighteenth century, James Cook became the first European to define the outline of New Zealand. Thanks to Cook’s detailed charts, & his gentlemen passengers’ scientific & artistic documentation, accurate knowledge of New Zealand was available in Europe for the first time from the 1770s.
Captain James Cook has left a permanent imprint on the consciousness of New Zealanders - he named more coastal landmarks than any other person, & his name is attached to two of the country’s most significant geographical features (Mt Aoraki / Mt Cook & Cook Strait).
