In Beyond Capricorn, Peter Trickett challenges the commonly held view that the European discovery of Australia and New Zealand was made first by the Dutch, followed later by Britain's Captain James Cook. Trickett argues the remarkable claim that in the year 1522 - a century before the Dutch and 250 years before Captain Cook - the Portuguese sailed past Fraser Island and into Botany Bay, around Wilson's Promontory, and as far as Kangaroo Island before returning to their base in Malacca via the North Island of New Zealand.
