20th century events[edit]

I have cut the following, becase it is not strictly relevant (and is poorly sourced): "In 1978 Dutch television documented this as part of a campaign by the Wik Munkan people to protect their land—using the slogan, "we defeated you over 300 years ago, we will do so again"—and Shell consequently agreed to a petition from these same Aboriginal people. Shell agreed to abandon plans to build a bauxite mine if they could not secure Aboriginal consent, leaving untouched over 600 square miles (1,600 km2) of forest that was still hunted and gathered by Aborigines."--Grahame (talk) 08:04, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Map of the voyage[edit]

A map showing the voyage could clarify this article. Aren't there any (historical) maps of the voyage? Rubenescio (talk) 11:38, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

see p37 of http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks06/0600631h.html. It would be nice if somebody imported it, but I don't know how.--Grahame (talk) 14:03, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
