Description:

Map of Cape York, with Dutch names along the western side of Cape York, inlcuding, ‘Pt Duyfhen‘, where the first European landing on the Australian continent occurred in 1606. The Dutch East India Comapny (VOC) ship, Duyfken under the command of  Willim Janz landed near present day Weipa on the western side of Cape Yorke.

In 1605 the yacht Duyfken with Captain Willem Jansz was placed at the disposal of Govemor de Houtman by Admiral Steven van der Haghen. De Houtman gave orders for the expedition to the so-called “southern lands” to Jansz. On 26 October 1605 the English Captain Satis, of the English East India Company at Bantam made the following entry in his diary:
The sixe and twentieth, Admirall Vanhangen [sic] of Utricke departed for Holland, with two ships more in company, by whom we advised the Company of all matters at large.
A month later he added the following information in his record:
 The eighteenth [November], heere departed a small pinnasse of the Flemmings, for the discovery of Ule Island called Nova ginnea, which, as it is said, affordeth great store of Gold”
He receives more news about the Duyfken half a year later, when he wtites:
The tifteenth of .lunc [1606] have arrived Nockhoda Tingall a Cling-man from Banda, in a .lava .lunk, laden with mace and nutmeg, the which he sold to the Guzerats; he told me Ulat the Flemmings Pinnasse which went upon discovery for Nova Ginny, was returned to Banda, having found the !land: but in sending their men on shoare to intreate of Trade, there were nine of them killed by the Heathens, wluch are men-eaters: so they were constrained to reLUrne, tinding no good to be doene there”.
