Dance Information

Lieutenant Zachary Hicks (1739 - 1771) is credited with first sighting the continent of Australia, at (now) Point Hicks in 1770 when he was a Royal Navy officer and second-in-command on Captain Cook's HMS Endeavour voyage to Australia and New Zealand.

New Zealand's Hicks Bay and eastern Australia's Point Hicks are named in his honour.
