"...From the dock of his ship Lieutenant James Cook watched the shore of this new country passing before him. He saw tall cliffs broken by inlets lined with white, sandy beaches & places where the land swept right down to the sea & the trees almost reached the water's edge. And now here was this large picturesque bay. He raised his telescope & looked more closely...He returned to his chart & the work in hand, marking the coastline & the bay. He would call it...he searched his mind - Bateman Bay. As a young naval officer Cook had served on the Northumberland under the command of Nathaniel Bateman, sailing & charting the St.Lawrence River in Canada. The Commander had evidently sufficiently impressed the young Cook to warrant his name being recorded & remembered for all time...Many years were to pass before another white man viewed this placid stretch of water & marvelled at its unending beauty."
