First Fleet Story:

On 13 May 1787 there was a fleet of 11 ships, which is known as First Fleet. The first fleet was sent by the British Admiralty from England to Australia. The objective of sending the fleet was to establish a Penal Colony at Botany Bay on coast of New South Wales, explored by Lieutenant James Cook in 1770. On Jan 21, Philip & some other officers travelled (12km) to Port Jackson , to see if it would be a better location for settlement. They stayed there until January 23. Philip named that site of their landing Sydney Cove.

On the next day January 24, they returned to Botany Bay. They waited there till 25 January because there was huge gale blowing that was making it impossible to leave. During 24 January they spotted the ships Astrolabe & Boussole flying the French Flag at the entrance to Botany Bay. These ships were also having the same trouble getting into Bay as the first fleet having getting out.

On early morning 26 January Philip along with few dozens marines, officers & oarsmen, rowed ashore & took possession of land in name of King George III. There were few others ships also at Botany Bay facing the trouble, HMS Sirius, Charlotte, Friendship, Prince of Wales. HMS Sirius was one of those ships which had successfully cleared Botany Bay. Charlotte was blown close to rocks. Charlotte & Friendship collided. Friendship & Prince of Wales became entangled.

All other remaining ships finally managed to clear Botany Bay & Sail to Sydney Cove on January 26.the last ship anchored there at about 3 p.m. Formal establishment of colony was occur when formal proclamation of colony & Arthur’s governorship read out, &  it was not read out until 7 Feb 1788. After the formal proclamation made in 1788, Jan 26 became a day of celebration for Australia and known as Australia Day.
