Captain Cook did not discover Australia. Notwithstanding the presence of Australian Aborigines, and the Asian sea-slug traders who visiter the continent's northern shores long before Eureopean settlement, Australia was "discovered" by Dutch explorers in the early 1600s. The boat in which Captain Cook explored and charted the eastern coastline was the H.M.Bark Endeavour.
Captain James Cook in 1770, Australia was originally used to house immates for over crowded British jails. No, Cook explored and surveyed Australia in the 1770, but it was probably discovered by the Portuguese in the 1500s and certainly explored and described and named as New Holland by the Dutch early in the 1600s.
Captain Cook made the first European contact with eastern coastline of Australia and Hawaiian Islands as well as the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand. In New Zealand, Captain Cook named Hawke's Bay, Kidnapper's Bay, Mercury Bay, the "Young Nick's Head" Peninsula, Mount Egmont and Queen Charlotte's Sound. In Australia, Captain Cook named a large number of places. For a complete list, see the link below.
Captain Cook did not leave anyone as the first governor of Australia. Cook explored and charted the eastern coast in 1770, and made his recommendations to the English government that the land of "New South Wales" be settled as a penal colony. It was not until 1788 that the first Governor, Arthur Phillip, came with the First Fleet. This occurred nine years after Cook was killed by natives in Hawaii.
