History reads, that Cook went ashore near the Round Hill with his botanist Joseph Banks and Daniel Solanderom Assistant. It was only the second time, When he set foot on Australian land. Cook noted in his logbook, that there were a lot of pelicans, as well as different types of Bustards, several of which they get shot and eaten. Экипаж посчитал этих птиц личшим из всего того, что они ели после отъезда из Англии и по этому случаю место высадки было решено назвать Бастард Бей (Побережье Дроф).
