Dysentery was the most common disease on the First Fleet, caused by the unsanitary conditions. Fevers were common. Cholera and typhoid were also diseases experienced by many, …and there was also some venereal disease, as the soldiers quite happily took the women convicts for their own use whenever they wanted.
The First Fleet brought a variety of items needed to start a newsettlement, such as seed, farm implements, and farm animals.Unfortunately, a large portion of the seed brought …from Englandwent mouldy or was eaten by rats on the long voyage, or simplycouldn't grow in the hot, humid Australian climate. Furthermore,the English implements was no match for the rough, hard Australianground, and many broke. At Rio de Janeiro and the Cape of Good Hope, more seeds and cropswere bought, including coffee, cocoa, cotton, bananas, oranges,lemons, guavas, tamarinds and prickly pear. There were at least 500 farm animals taken on the fleet, includingstock animals such as sheep, cattle, horses and pigs. There wasplenty of poultry, and even rabbits (though these are not the onesresponsible for the rabbit plagues in Australia today). there weredogs and cats, and of course, rats which stowed away on the ships. The convicts were only allowed to bring what they wore, but themarines and their families brought a variety of personalpossessions.

No, The people that arrived in Australia in the first fleet nearly starved to death. Australia was very strange for the people of the First Fleet. When the first European set…tlers arrived in Australia, they found a hot, humid country. The bushland was thick and unlike anything they had at home - instead of green, grassy hills and green trees, they found rocky terrain and strange, grey-green trees that smelled strong and sweet. There was an eerieness to the bushland, because it seemed all the same to their inexperienced eyes, and stories of the Aborigines were exaggerated to make the convicts fear stepping outside the camps. Any who did escape quickly became lost, and many convict bones lie scattered in the bush where they became hopelessly lost, and unable to fend for themselves. The heat and humidity made it difficult to motivate the convicts to work, and English tools and implements were unusable in the tough Australian soil. There were strange hopping animals - the 'kangaroo' - and strange, noisy birds such as the kookaburra and cockatoos.
The First Fleet to Australia was made up of several hundred convicts from Great Britain, along with hundreds of marines and officers to guard them and administer the new c…olony.
The convicts of the First Fleet had numerous tasks. They were required to clear the land of trees and rocks; cut stone and construct buildings; quarry stone for roads; plough …the soil and plant seed; and numerous other trades to help build the colony up to the point of being self-sufficient.

It wasn't. Despite Captain Arthur Phillip's to try and keep theconvicts as healthy as possible, typhoid, cholera and dysenterywere prevalent among the convicts. Conditions bel…ow decks wereunsanitary as bad weather prevented the convicts from going up ondeck most of the time.
It is not actually known why rabbits came with the First Fleet, butfor whatever reason, they did not breed prolifically or cause anyproblems for the first few years of the col…ony's settlement. Thereis absence of any evidence that they were either eaten or huntedfor sport in the Sydney area, so it is uncertain why rabbits wereinitially introduced. They were known to be popular as pets in theSydney area in the 1840s, but this is long A&R the First Fleet. This is completely different from the introduction of rabbitslater, in the 1850s, when they were brought over specifically forthe purpose of hunting.
