The Beagle voyages and Port Darwin

The City of Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia was named after Charles Darwin. However, although Charles Darwin did visit southern Australia he did not visit Darwin, which did not exist at the time.

The HMS Beagle visited northern Australia on its third voyage, and his old shipmates named Port Darwin in honour of their friend and colleague. The following ebook outlines the three Beagle voyages, and the naming of Port Darwin.
