The distance from London, UK to Perth, Australia is 7,823 nautical miles. if your boat sails at 20 mph, it would take 16 (24 hour) days 7 hours and 12 minutes to get there. At 30 mph, it would take 10 days 20 hours and 36 minutes. At 40 mph, it would take 8 days 3 hours and 18 minutes. Basically, the faster you sail, the less time your trip will take.
He didn't. "Australia" was unknown then. The orders James Cook had were to sail west from Tahiti (after observing the transit of Venus) until he reached Terra Australis Incognita - "The Unknown Southern Land" - and to map it, record observations of it and, if he felt it was worthwhile, to claim the land, as long as it was unoccupied.
