Significance

The British exploration collection draws together material relating to the voyages of prominent explorers from William Dampier's first landfall in Australia in 1688, through the great age of Cook and Pacific exploration, to the period after colonial settlement. The collection includes the work of voyage artists such as Parkinson, Hodges, Webber, Westall and Brierley and reflects a growing European appreciation of the Asia Pacific region, particularly in the later part of the 18th century.
