Captain Cook 1770

On display in the museum at the moment we have a remarkably detailed model of the Endeavour and a large heavy iron ballast block from 1770, along with a written account of the moment the Endeavour ran onto the great barrier reef, goods had to be jettisoned including the ballast block on display to save the ship from being broken up upon the reef.
