Object ID PAD5990
Description Print depicting the 'Endeavour' badly damaged after running aground on the Great Barrier Reef in June 1770. The ship limped into Endeavour River on the coast of New South Wales for repair. Anchors, cables and stores were carried ashore to lighten the ship which was then 'careened', or leant over, so that the damage could be inspected and repaired and the voyage continued. The print is described in the Caird Catalogue as dating to circa 1780, but no early provenance is given.
