|Description:||In 1605, a Dutch ship left Java to explore the mysterious South. Shipwreck and fighting discouraged further exploration until 1642, when Governor General van Dieman outfitted a new expedition headed by Abel Tasman, reaching Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. Later, Tasman went on to "discover" Tonga and Fiji.|
