The map he produced was so accurate that it was still in use in the 20th century. He won command of his first round-the-world voyage in part because he could be trusted to navigate in uncharted territory and bring home precise maps of the lands he discovered.
Their journey was ostensibly a scientific expedition—they were charged with sailing to Tahiti to observe the transit of Venus across the face of the sun—but it also had a hidden military agenda. The explorer followed orders and sailed south to the 40th parallel, but found no evidence of the fabled continent.

He then turned west and circled New Zealand, proving it was a pair of islands and not connected to a larger landmass. Cook would later resume his search for the Southern Continent during his second circumnavigation of the globe in the early s, and came tantalizingly close to sighting Antarctica before pack ice forced him to turn back. His ship Endeavour nearly sank on the Great Barrier Reef. After landing in Australia during his first voyage, Cook pointed his ship north and headed for the Dutch seaport of Batavia.
Because he was in unmapped territory, he had no idea he was sailing directly into the razor-sharp coral formations of the Great Barrier Reef. On June 11, , his ship Endeavour slammed into a coral reef and began taking on water, endangering both his crew and his priceless charts of his Pacific discoveries. They even used an old sail to try and plug a hole in their hull.

After more than 20 desperate hours, they finally stopped the leak and limped toward the Australian coast. It would take Cook nearly two months of repairs to make his ship seaworthy again. Cook helped pioneer new methods for warding off scurvy. In the 18th century, the specter of scurvy—a disease caused by a lack of vitamin C—loomed over every long distance sea voyage.
Students will have access to an online wine tutor and will be expected to taste recommended Australian wines during the course and submit tasting notes for review. There are practice quizzes to undertake in preparation for an online multiple choice test at the end of the course. The course follows a weekly structure, but it allows the student to work ahead or catch up on the activities and forums. There are no set times to log into the course as there are no live chats or webinars.
Students are required to purchase their own wine. Open to the public ; DU Rockhampton Campus Library. Karratha Public Library.
