Online Primary Sources: Early Explorations of Australia

The good folks at Project Gutenberg Australia have produced Journals of Australian Land and Sea Explorers and Discoverers, a site that contains among other writings the work of James Cook, William Dampier, Matthew Flinders, and Phillip King. Entries either have a biography accompanying the author or direct you to the Dictionary of Australian Biography. Primary sources for The First Fleet can also be consulted here as can maps and charts highlighting the European discovery of the continent by sea.
