Yarrabah is an Aboriginal community south of Cairns. On an evening in early June 1770, the Endeavour anchored near there. While James Cook had no luck in finding accessible fresh water, Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander added to their plant collection. There were no encounters with local Gunggandji people, but the Endeavour's visit was recorded in nearby rock art.
We will add more stories and perspectives that Indigenous people have shared with us — stories missed by those on the Endeavour — on 10 June 2020.
