The 1800-1804 Baudin expedition was the greatest voyage of marine exploration of its age. The map makers surveyed around 50% of Australia's then largely unexplored coast - proving it a single continent, which led to the first comprehensive map of Australia's coastline. Over 200,000 botanical specimens were collected and 2,542 species identified for the first time. Despite his commitment and achievements Nicolas Baudin was largely unrecognised.

Terra Australis: The Baudin Voyage of Discovery, 1800-1804 is an educational package for secondary schools which acknowledges the huge contribution made by Baudin, his cartographers, scientists, artists, officers and crew.

The package comprises:

  • a background resource for teachers, summarising the expedition
  • eleven units of investigative resources for secondary school students, most from original resources
  • over 120 illustrations, most in full color, including maps and charts, portraits and sketches, and vibrant ethnographic and biological illustrations
  • The Captain and the Convict Maid: A Chapter in the Life of Nicolas Baudin by Anthony J. Brown

    Terra Australis 2001 WA Association Inc was formed to coordinate the celebration of the Baudin Bicentenary in Western Australia and promote greater awareness and understanding of Australia’s early French explorers. It operates in partnership with similar groups in the Australia's Eastern States and France as part of the French-Australian Committee for the Bicentenary of the Baudin Expedition.
