Tasmania was first discovered by Europeans in the 1600's and numerous maps of the island have been made since this time. Tasmania had been inhabited by the Aborigines for thousands of years, however it was only discovered by the first Europeans in 1642. Initially it was called Van Diemen's Land after an explorer known as Abel Tasman discovered it and undertook the task to map Tasmania. Many other explorers went on to continue Tasman's initial work to map Tasmania, most notably Captain James Cook in 1777. Click here for more information on when Abel Tasman undertook to map Tasmania.
