James Cook's third journey was about three years long. It commenced in 1776, and ended on 14 February 1779 when Cook was speared by Hawaiian natives.
One of the scariest things that happened to James Cook during his voyage was the Great Hurricane of 1780. While on their way to the Hawaiian Islands, the HMS Resolution and HMS Discovery encountered the storm in the South Pacific. The storm was so intense that the ships were separated and the crew members were forced to take refuge in the rigging and wait out the storm. The ships were battered by the high winds and waves, and the crew was in danger of being thrown overboard. Fortunately, they managed to survive the storm and reunite with each other the following day.
The crew encountered a few other dangerous events during their voyage, including:
However, the Great Hurricane of 1780 was one of the most intense storms the crew had ever encountered and was the most frightening experience of the entire voyage.
James Cook was sent to Tahiti on a scientific mission to observe the transit of Venus across the sun.
The transit of Venus occurs when the planet Venus passes directly between the Earth and the Sun, and its unlit side can be seen as a small black circle moving across the face of the Sun. Transits of Venus occur in pairs, eight years apart, approximately once every 120 years. Cook's ship, the 'Endeavour', departed England, on 25 August 1768. Cook reached Tahiti in time for his crew and scientists to set up their instrumentation necessary to observe and report on the transit, which occurred on 3 June 1769.
People have lived in the Samoan Islands for over 2,500 years. The first European to discover the Samoan Island was Dutch navigator Jacob Roggeveen, in 1722.
Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders have been living in the Australian continent for thousands of years. In the 1500s, Europeans knew of the existence of New Guinea and the island of Timor, but the first believed to have found the Australian continent was Portuguese explorer Christovao de Mendonca. Mendonca never returned to portugal, but wreckage believed to have been from his ships was found along the Australian coastline. Other sources suggest the first to sight Australia was actually Gomes de Sequeira, also of Portugal, in 1525. His descriptions of the islands he noted when he was blown off course are believed to be islands off the Northern Territory. There is, however, no real proof of this. Several more Portuguese explorers followed, including Louis de Torres, after whom Torres strait is named. The first to chart any part of the Australian continent was explorer Willem Jansz, in 1616. Willem Jansz/Janszoon was a Dutchman who was seeking new trade routes and trade associates. He became the first recorded European to step foot on Australia's shores on the western shore of Cape York Peninsula, on 26 February 1606. However, he believed the Cape to be part of New Guinea, from whence he crossed the Arafura Sea.
The question proceeds from a false assumption. James Cook did not discover Australia; nor was he a Captain at the time he charted the eastern coast.
James Cook was still a Lieutenant in charge of the Endeavour when he charted the eastern coast of Australia and claimed it for Great Britain on 22 August 1770, calling it New South Wales. He charted the east coast between April and August of that year. For this reason, Cook is often wrongly credited with discovering Australia.
James Cook was commissioned by the Royal Society in England to search the southern seas and find the "Great Southland" ("Terra Australis") that was believed to exist in the world's southern oceans somewhere. The result was that although he hadn't been the first European to discover Australia, he was the first known to have sailed along and chart most of the eastern coast of Australia - which was eventually to become the most significant for settlement.
Both. He once fell out of his pram when his nurse was not looking and when he came home he found the window to be locked. Thinking that his parents no longer loved him anymore he ran away to Neverland.

After Lieutenant (not yet Captain) James Cook circumnavigated New Zealand, he then continued west, until he reached the southeastern corner of mainland Australia. When he reached Australia's eastern coast, he then travelled north, charting the new territory.
The first person to discover is unsure, because we only know of the Maori who came here on 'Wakas' (canoes) but the first European we know of to set foot on New Zealand is Abel Tasman, however his ship isnt very commonly known, and i do not know it either, but he left very soon assuming that the country was just a small island in the pacific, but later on Captain James Cook landed in New Zealand and explored and mapped the coastlines, and his ship was named the 'Endeavour'
James Cook was not the first to find New Zealand. Abel Tasman discovered it in 1642.
Cook was given orders from the government in England to sail down to the south in search of a 'great southern land' that would balance out the world. That's what they thought at that time.

On 6 October 1769, Nicholas Young, the surgeon's boy, sighted the coastline of New Zealand from the masthead of The Endeavour. On 8 October 1769 the Endeavour sailed into a bay, and laid anchor at the entrance of a small river in Tuuranga-nui (today's Poverty Bay, near modern Gisborne). Cook named a peninsula in this bay "Young Nick's Head" after Nicholas Young.
James Cook (a Lieutenant when he arrived in Australia, not a captain) claimed the east coast of Australia for Great Britain in 1770. He named it New South Wales.
Captain James Cook died on 14 February 1779 whilst visiting Hawaii on his return from his third major voyage.

yes, he had problems with his boat and also with health problems. He almost died because of an infection in his leg because of a antarctic soldiar trying to kill pirates near by with a toxic bomb.
Ferdinand Magellan is generally credited with being the first explorer to circumnavigate the world.
Botany Bay's original name, as given by James Cook, was "Stingray Harbour". However, it was later changed to "Botany Bay" because of the many new and unique plant species that Cook's botanists (Sir Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander) found, classified and catalogued there.
