This clear chart shows the track of the ship Alexander, one of the famed "First Fleet" delivering convicts to the settlements in Australia. Lieutenant John Shortland was Agent to the transports of the First Fleet, and was ordered to take this route home along the east coast of Australia via Java by Governor Phillip. Phillip recorded the unusual difficulties of the journey in his account of the colony, using Shortland's journal. Also shown crossing from Queen Charlotte's Islands to New Ireland is the track of the explorer Carteret.
