Commemorating James Cook in the Mercury Bay

On November 3 in 1769 Lieutenant James Cook arrived in His Majesty's Bark Endeavour in the Mercury Bay and observed the transit of the planet Mercury. Fast forward into the future and November 2019 will mark 250 years since he stepped ashore.  Across New Zealand and Mercury Bay planning is underway to commemorate this sestercentennial. There will be a range of events in Whitianga and the wider Mercury Bay to celebrate Captain Cook's visit to the area.

Cheers, Andy
